Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:34-36 ESV)
Иисус отвечал им: истинно, истинно говорю вам: всякий, делающий грех, есть раб греха. Но раб не пребывает в доме вечно; сын пребывает вечно. Итак, если Сын освободит вас, то истинно свободны будете. (Иоанна 8:34-36 Russian)
Most holy and awesome God, our dear Father in heaven! Thank you Lord for the kindness that you demonstrate daily toward creation – especially mankind who you made in your own image. Help everyone who has come to realize their addiction to drugs, alcohol or other harmful habits that dominate their behavior. Give patience and goodwill to those loved ones who struggle to help those enslaved to all kinds or unrighteous behavior. Forgive us for times when we may have simply condemned the person without offering to help. Encourage those who are feeling lonely and helpless in their sinful life. Help us Lord, and all Christians to practice kindness and forgiveness. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
