Good Friday Prayer Vigil

Tomorrow morning at 10:30, Lord willing, I will have the privilge of sharing a meditation from Isaiah 52:13-15 at the annual Pro-Life Action Ministries Good Friday Prayer Vigil.

The vigil is specifically designed to pray for the unborn, their parents, and those who's vocation is to end the life of the unborn. The vigil will be held on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion clinic in the Twin Cities.

My heart's desire is for people to be saved, deep emotional wounds to be healed, and gospel relationships to be established with the unbeliving.

May God be pleased to use Isaiah's description of Christ's mangled body from Isaiah 52-53 to bring eternal healing through His wounds! (This passage was written by Isaiah 700 years before Christ was born!)

"So His appearance was marred more than any man (52:14); He was despised and forsaken of men (53:2); He was pierced through for our transgressions (53:5); And by His wounds we are healed (53:5); But the Lord was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief; if He would render Himself as a guilt offering (53:10); As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; by His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant will justify the many, as he will bear their iniquities (53:11); Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, and interceded for the transgressors (53:12)"
