Prayer for John 3:29

“He who has the bride is the groom. But the groom's friend, who stands by and listens for him, rejoices greatly at the groom's voice. So this joy of mine is complete.”

Praying through John 3:29

Heavenly Father, what a thrill to realise that because I believe in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ, and His sacrificial work on the Cross, I have been given the right to become Your child and have been made a member of His mystic Body and am part of His spiritual Bride. As I reflect on the joy that servants, like John the Baptist, expressed in recognising Jesus as the beloved Son of God, Who takes away the sin of the world, it fills me with wonder and awe at Your faithfulness to both Israel and Your great love of the Church. Just as John rejoiced to point people to the Bridegroom, so I rejoice that the day is coming when all Israel will be saved, when they repent of their sin nationally, and call out to the Lord Jesus for their own salvation. Great is Your faithfulness. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
