On a mission from God

Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and to open the prison to those who are bound Is. 61:1 Luke 4:18

Jesus announced this mission 2000+ years ago and Isaiah spoke it hundreds of years before that. In one way or another we all experience poverty, broken hearts, and imprisonment. We can respond to the healing, comfort and freedom He gives us by participating in His mission. This  is the work of compassion, the prayer of peace, the heart of grace.

Lord, let bringing and binding, proclaiming and opening be my heart’s mission.
