We pray that the people of Benin will learn to speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom. Holy Spirit, instruct the Churches and teach the Christian Believers to recognize that they will all be judged by the law of freedom. They will have to answer to You, the judge for what they have done. They should live as those who know that. In what they say and in what they do they must obey Your law. Lord, let the nature of that law cause the leaders to be kind to all people. Make the Churches proclaim that it is the law of freedom for those who have real trust inYou. Dear God in Your love, you have made Your children free from the punishment for their sins. We pray that Christians Believers will show Your love to other people both in words and in actions (The Bible, James 2:12).
Our Father in Heaven, we know that You see the people in Indonesia who are not being shown mercy. For Christian Believers who are being persecuted by authorities, neighbors, and family. For the vulnerable and marginalized who are frequently not shown mercy by the authorities or community. For the lawmakers and the law keepers. James teaches us that judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful, so we pray for mercy to be given. Thank you that mercy always triumphs over judgment (The Bible, James 2:13).
