When it was time for a deliverer to be born in Egypt, Pharaoh said:
“Every son that is born to the Hebrews you shall cast into the Nile, but you shall let every daughter live.” (Exodus 1:22)
Fifteen hundred years later, when the Deliverer was born in Bethlehem:
Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men. (Matthew 2:16)
The same god of this world is trying to kill off our children today. Are these children the generation that will see the Deliverer return in all of His glory?
My prayer today:
Lord, anoint us for battle to fight for our school children with prayers, fasting, and the high praises of God in our mouths with a two-edged sword in our hands. (Based on Psalm 149:6)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for school children.
