Father of Mercy for an Adulterous Generation
40 Days of Mercy Devotional – Lent 2012 – Day 2
‘Apart from God, there is no contentment anywhere.’ (42)
‘They will come with weeping; they will pray as I bring them back. I will lead them besides streams of water, on a level path where they will not stumble, because I am Israel’s father, and Ephraim, my firstborn son.’ (Jer. 31:9)
Make Your steadfast love known to us, O God. Let Mercy flow from us to unfaithful ones. How can we refuse to give mercy away? Mercy liberated our faithful response to You in the first place. Your ‘hesed’ became ours.
