The book of Second Samuel, chapter 1, verse 27, King David cried out these words: “How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!” This future king of Israel cried these words after the defeat of God’s army in battle and the death of their King Saul. As in our time, many have been lead into self-focus. They’ve been living by human reasoning and the accompanying of prayerlessness.
How many godly people throughout history have uttered the same cry? It happens when God’s people become self-reliant and refuse to acknowledge their need of divine help. Oh yes, one day, they will return to victory. And of course this is your hope and mine in the season we’re living in, but that victory would not come without somebody turning to prayer. As David did, you and I must turn to prayer again.
It’s time to pray.
