In the book of Genesis, chapter 6, and verse 11, the Word of God tells us before the earth was judged in that generation, it had become corrupt before God and was filled with violence. You and I must be alarmed in this generation which we are living in today when we see the senseless shootings going on in our society.
Just about the time of this devotional, there have been five police officers in North America that have been senselessly and deliberately gunned down, another college shooting and another high school shooting. Amos chapter 6 tells us that a prayerless, self-focused people caused the seed of violence to draw near. He talks about putting away the evil day. You and I must not be at this time found among this number. We must pray, God must come. There must be an awareness of His presence and His holiness again.
It’s time to pray.
