Second Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
Welcome to World Prayer Today. Today we stop in South Africa where we hear the amazing testimony of a drug dealer who found new life in Jesus.
“I had no hope and I was waiting to die because I thought I was cursed. I was a drug dealer and no longer acting like a human being. My sins were many and they were horrendous. One day as I was waiting for my friend so we could carry on with our evil deeds, my aunt was listening to a radio. The only words I remember the pastor repeating were, ‘God is the God of second chances. If you ask Him, He will give you new life in Jesus.’
“Those words changed my life completely. I looked at my life and realized I wanted a second chance. Thank you for your powerful and touching sermons that are broadcasted in my language of Zulu. I have given my life to the Lord and am trying to change my ways. I try to tell people around me, if God will forgive me … He will surely forgive anyone.”
What a great story! Do you know someone who needs a second chance today? As you pray for them, will you also pray for those listening to Thru the Bible who are stuck in a life of misery and sin? Let’s ask God to open their hearts to the message of His love and forgiveness, so they too can find new life in Jesus.
Be sure to join us next week as we pray our way through Western Europe. Until then, may God richly bless you!
