Tuesday’s Prayers for America (5/6/2014)

IMG_2413

 

Because of man’s fallen and sinful nature, believers were not able to have intimate relationships with God in the Old Testament. Thus, a high priest ordained by God went into the Temple’s Holy of Holies every year on the Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur,  with the blood of bulls and goats to atone for himself and Israel before God and His mercy seat. A thick veil separated the Temple’s Holy of Holies from the Holy Place, keeping all of mankind away from the presence of God.

The same moment that Jesus died on the cross, the veil was torn in two. The sacrifice of Jesus and His blood provided all of us access to God. No longer do we need a high priest to be our mediator or go-between person.

Today, I prayed:

Lord, help us American believers to accept the finished work of the cross and remove every go-between person, standing between You and us, so that only one mediator remains, the man Christ Jesus. (Based on 1 Timothy 2:5)

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

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

  1. Thank you, Mr. Larry . . .I think this is a very needed prayer and am joining you today. My prayer kind of ties into yours, though I think it is a repeat for me. I prayed for myself and America to seek God. I was reading in Rev. 9:6, about how they will seek death, but not find it, and I thought about how if we seek Him, we will find Him. . .and Life.
    God bless you!

  2. Debbie,

    Thanks. Our prayers do tie in because we need to focus ourselves on Jesus and no one else. God bless you.
