Although most of the many people who came from Ephraim, Manasseh, Issachar and Zebulun had not purified themselves, yet they ate the Passover, contrary to what was written. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, “May the Lord, who is good, pardon everyone who sets their heart on seeking God—the Lord, the God of their ancestors—even if they are not clean according to the rules of the sanctuary.” And the Lord heard Hezekiah and healed the people.
2 Chronicles 30:18-20
Even those who were “unclean” were still healed by God. He heard King Hezekiah’s prayers and God answered them. Is it not amazing how a petition from one can bless many? Who are you praying for besides yourself? Who is praying for you?
Visualizing these people in the sanctuary, not following the rules, yet King Hezekiah didn’t curse them and tell them to leave. Nope, he prayed for them, and God healed them. That is grace. If you don’t believe there is hope for all of us, then you truly are cynical. But even then, I believe God’s grace will touch you.
Set your heart and mind on God, pray for discernment, obedience, enlightenment, strength, guidance, and sustenance. Pray for forgiveness and to forgive others. Pray for grace and mercy, and to be gracious and merciful. Pray for healing and for the ability to be used for healing. Pray for blessings and to be a blessing to others.
Now go touch other lives in a positive and loving way. Let’s spread love.
Father, I love You. Thank You for accepting me while still molding me to be the best spiritual reflection of You. Thank You for allowing me to eat, drink, and live life even if I haven’t fulfilled my obligations to You, obeyed all of Your commands, or walked the path that You have laid. You are loving, kind, gracious, giving, forgiving, understanding, and the Provider of anything and everything that I could ever want or need. Thank You Father. I love You. Amen.
Love you all,
