Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist, prophesied in thanksgiving to God,
“This was the oath he (God) swore to our father Abraham:
to set us free from the hands of our enemies, free to worship him without fear,
holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.” Lk 1:69-75
To set us free, beloved, through the sacrifice of Jesus.
And even if that freedom might be withheld bodily, we are
always free in spirit to worship and believe and love,
just as Jesus taught.
Pray tonight beloved, for those who are persecuted for their faith.
May our Loving God bless them and keep them safe!
In Jesus’ Name we pray.
