Tuesday’s Prayers for America (10/28/2014)

Dolly who

 

Once a week, a simple-minded Christian friend dropped by a particular used car dealership where I was employed. He walked onto the sales lot and I went out to greet him. He asked questions about each car. I did my best to tell him what I knew about the vehicles. He had no money to buy one, but even so, he didn’t have a driver’s license. It was just a fun game of make-believe for him.

One morning, after my friend left, I walked back inside the dealership just in time to hear a salesmen make fun of my friend. The other salesmen guffawed along with the jokester.

The Holy Spirit came upon me at that moment. “Don’t you ever make fun of my  brother again,” I proclaimed in a loud voice.

“What? He’s your brother?” asked the jokester.

“Yes! He’s my Christian brother and don’t you ever make fun of one of my Christian brothers again!”

“Even Jerry Falwell and Jimmy Swaggart?”

“Yes, they’re my brothers, too. Don’t you ever make fun of them again. Do you hear me?” I proclaimed.

Every salesman turned around and walked into his office. No one ever made fun of a Christian around me again at that dealership.

Today, I prayed:

Lord, help us American believers to be patient with our brothers and sisters in Christ, to make allowances for each other’s faults because of Your love, and to make every effort to keep ourselves united in the Spirit.   (Ephesians 4:2)

What do you think and did the Lord speak to you today?

  1. Thank you for this prayer, Mr. Larry. So needed, and this is spoken from one of those who require much patience from my brothers and sisters. I prayed from John 18 today, for us American believers to be able to drink the cup that is given us. God bless you!

  2. Debbie,

    I found out yesterday how much I needed this prayer. I had read some articles written by a couple of my Christian friends and their ideas smelled bad. I was praying for them, but also thinking I should give them a few sharp words when I felt the Holy Spirit wanted me to check my post. And guess what I learned? I needed to be patient with them and make allowances for their faults. Ouch!

    I agree with your prayer that we Americans may be able to drink the cup given to us. Thanks. God bless you.

  3. That is so good , Larry. There was just something about this post that really spoke to my heart. There is a lot of correction and admonishing going on, it seems, and I know it is good too . . . .but I don’t see as much patience and allowances as we grow and learn. I need a lot of patience from God and others . . .and need to have patience for others too, knowing this!

  4. Debbie,

    We ALL need patience from God and with others. O Lord!
