Tuesday’s Prayers for America (5/27/20140

Lazarus was just an unknown guy from a small village named Bethany, located two miles from Jerusalem. He, along with his sisters, Martha and Mary, followed Jesus.

Then, Lazarus became sick. The two sisters sent for Jesus and hoped He would come quickly to Bethany and heal their brother. Jesus remarked, “This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son may be glorified through it.

Jesus waited two more days and then said, “Let us go…Our friend Lazarus has died.”

The One who holds the keys of death and the grave¬†eventually arrived at the tomb of Lazarus. He had the stone rolled away and said, “Lazarus come out.

Lazarus walked out of the tomb.

From this day forward, Lazarus became well-known. Crowds wanted to see and meet him. Chief priests wanted to kill him because many Jews believed in Jesus on account of Lazarus’ testimony.

Eusebius, the historian, wrote in the second century that the village was no longer called Bethany, but its name had been changed to the “place of Lazarus.”

Today, I prayed:

Lord, for all the prophets and apostles in America whose callings and ministries are lying dead in tombs of bad finances, impossible relationships, sickness, mistakes, errors, and whatever hopelessness has befallen them, I pray, “Lazarus, come forth and change America by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimonies.” (Based on John 11: 43 and Revelation 12:11)

What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you?

Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for America.

  1. Gosh, Mr. Larry, that is such a great prayer. Thank you and praying with you!!! I love that Rev. verse.
    I was in Matthew Chapter 3 today, thinking about how God planned for John to prepare the way for Jesus, how all those people came to him and were baptized, confessing their sins. Praying for us to also make straight the path to Him, by confessing our sins publicly and repenting as needed. God bless you and yours!

  2. Debbie,

    Thanks. I pray that we all will be like John the Baptist and prepare the way for Jesus in our neighborhoods, families, and communities. God bless you and your-n.
