Blessing Our Cities--Transformation Part 2
Rev. 21:5 "Behold, I am making all things new..."
As we look out upon our cities and towns, those places where we live, work and minister, help us to dare to believe that You, transforming Lord, are making things new. Ultimately, all will be changed. Choose our cities for present-day displays of renewing grace. Take these very placs as they are today--the people, the sorrow, the splendors--and transform them so that the life of Heaven will be known on earth. You, God, are faithful. May the people of our cities have eyes to behold you and ears to hear you, and may this be especially true as Jesus' birth is proclaimed this Christmas season. May the people around us fix their hopes on you.
