If My People


“And the Lord appeared to Solomon by night and said unto him, ‘I have heard thy prayer and have chosen this place to myself for a house of sacrifice. If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if send pestilence among my people. . . if My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now Mine eyes shall be open, and Mine ears attentive unto the prayer that is made in this place. For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there forever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.”

God is one more time in history looking for someone to pray for this nation.

It’s time to pray.

I Sought For a Man


In the book of Ezekiel, chapter 22 verses 23-31, the prophet Ezekiel speaks about a nation in history that had become so corrupt that it was in danger of collapsing under the weight of its own disregard for the ways of God. It was a tragic social situation. The prophets were taking away the strength of the people. Priests standing in the temple of God were not showing the people the difference between the clean and the unclean anymore. Government leaders were violent in their speech, and everyone was out for his own gain and no longer the good of the people. The people of the land had become oppressive and selfish, disregarding the needs of the hungry and the stranger.

God says, “I looked for a man among them (somebody that could stand between where the nation was going and where God’s mercy could bring it), but I couldn’t find anybody.”

Oh my friend, you and I need to pray now.

When a Nation Becomes Foolish


In Psalm 14, verses 1 and 2, the psalmist David says, “The fool says in his heart there is no God.” And then of course believing that there is no God, they begin to be corrupt and do abominable works, and the society degenerates to the point where there is almost nobody doing good anymore. What a tragedy to see this kind of a thing happening again in our day.

But verse two gives us hope. It says, “The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any that did understand and that did seek God.” Just like in the days of Ezekiel, in chapter 22, verse 30, God says, “I sought for a man. I sought for somebody who could stand in the gap for the nation.”

Let it not be said of our generation that we came to the place where nobody could be found.

It is time for you and I to pray.

 

Ask the Lord for a Spiritual Awakening


Only God can cause us to rise and fight. Only God can give us the strength that we don’t have in ourselves but now resides in our physical body because of the presence of His Holy Spirit.

Pray that the Lord gives you the strength to fight for the sake of this generation, your children, and our families. Ask the Lord for a spiritual awakening in our generation that is so powerful that it will cause Hell itself to tremble. Ask for something so powerful that casual men and women will have to stop and take notice of the presence of God. Pray for a spiritual awakening so powerful that it shows this generation that God transforms, redeems, and saves.

He glorifies Himself in and through a people who wholeheartedly turn to him. Rise and cast down imaginations that try to tell you there’s no hope and there’s no future for you.
