This past Sunday (8/29) we discussed the way Nehemiah handled the news he received about the condition of Jerusalem, how his despair/burden led him to fast and pray, which, of course, led him to a plan. My prayer for all of us is that if any of us aren’t already executing a plan, that God will reveal His will for each of us as we pray. That said, as part of His church, His army (Eph 6:10ff), it’s also our responsibility to be praying at all times in the Spirit and to be on the alert for all of the saints! Even if that’s “all” we can do!
Please join me in praying for the persecuted church around the world. Please join me, most urgently, in praying for the crisis in Afghanistan. I don’t know what any of us can do, other than to pray, but through prayer miracles can happen AND He can open doors even for someone living here in the bellybutton of the USA. So pray as you start your day. Pray as you drive to work or drive the kids to school. Pray during the lulls and even when things are chaotic. Pray if something wakes you in the night…..
When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches.Psalm 63:6
In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord; in the night my hand was stretched out without weariness; my soul refused to be comforted.Psalm 77:2
Beseech the God of all flesh, not because He doesn’t know what’s going on, but because He Himself instructed us to pray!
Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the second time, while he was still confined in the court of the guard, saying, “Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it, the Lord is His name, ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’Jeremiah 33:1-3
Those are my thoughts on this rainy Friday. Blessings,
