: the act of accepting something or someone
: a favorable response
PRAY: Lord, I thank you for your acceptance—for your gracious welcome and salvation. I pray today that you would fill my heart with the acceptance you have extended to me. Show me how to respond favorably to those around me and especially how your spirit of acceptance might inform my votes this November. May your gracious acceptance and salvation spread across our land through your people this election.
2 Corinthians 6:2
“For He says, In the time of favor (of an assured welcome) I have listened to and heeded your call, and I have helped you on the day of deliverance (the day of salvation). Behold, now is truly the time for a gracious welcome and acceptance [of you from God]; behold, now is the day of salvation!”
