Obadiah 1:15 For near is the day of the LORD for all the nations! As you have done, so shall it be done to you, your deed shall come back upon your own head.
“Oh, my beloved, how heaven weeps at what sin has purchased for the earth! Do not cease to pray, but with fervent supplications entreat the Lord of Mercy not to give you what your deeds deserve. Death begets death. Greed begets poverty. Anger begets violence and war. Sin is not freedom—the wages of sin is death in this life and in the life to come. Pray my children! There is much reparation to be made. Can human effort ever make adequate reparation for sin? I tell you, only in Christ is this possible. Link your every prayer and sacrifice to his so that the punishment due to sin may be mitigated in some way. Pray for souls, my children. I am asking you as your beloved Abba to pray for souls.”
O my Jesus, help us to pray! We link our prayers and sacrifices to the cross so that adequate reparation may be made. For us this is impossible, but for you, Lord, all things are possible. Jesus we trust in you! Amen.
