Certainly, the practice of male circumcision has ancient origins. The Greek historian Herodotus recorded the practice in Egypt in 5th century BC, and in the Semitic tradition, male circumcision is linked to a covenant with God dating back to Abraham.
We exist in present time, Amen. In the earliest of times, in which God sought to form a covenant with His people, Abraham was ordered to circumcise himself as well as his slaves and descendants. Whilst this was a crucial step in the Old Testament for which God sought a symbol of His chosen people, in the New Testament we see His message and mercy extending to all of Mankind through His blessed Son, God’s Word made flesh – Jesus Christ. Whomever one is, wherever one is from, rejoice! For The Word of God is open to all, Amen!
And we pray:
Lord in Heaven above, I thank You for Your grace and glory, shone through upon all of Mankind. Send my prayers to all who know Your name, but also those who are yet to be welcomed into Your truth in light. For Your Love dwells within the heart of Men, all Men, forever and ever, Amen.
