What would we do if our grandson, granddaughter, son, daughter, or spouse was critically ill, lying on a hospital bed in a coma? Would we passionately pray with all of our hearts? Would we fast? Would we seek the Lord for His help?
Our answers to these questions would probably reveal our highest level of commitment for seeking the Lord on other people’s behalves. Why? Because we have invested our lives in these loved ones.
But do we realize that this level of commitment for our loved ones should be the same level of praying and seeking the Lord for all of the other people in America, even the least of them? And anything less is not pleasing to the Lord?
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior (1 Timothy 2:1-3)
My prayer for today:
Lord, remove the blinders from our eyes so that we see other people as You see them and give us Your heart so that we desire all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (Based on 1 Timothy 2:4)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.
