Prayers for the American Church (10/23/2018)

The Apostle Paul uttered some words that still shake me to the core when I read them.

For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh. (Romans 9:3)

If you missed what Paul was really saying in this verse, read it again. You see, Paul was willing to give up his salvation and go to Hell forever if his doing so would result in his fellow Jews being saved.

I don’t know about you, but Paul’s words make me uncomfortable at my low-level of love for my neighbors and other Americans.

My prayer today:

Lord, give the American church a love for our neighbors and other Americans like Paul had for his kinsmen so that we have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in our hearts until we see a great harvest of souls in our nation. (Based on Romans 9:2)

Join me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for the American church.

  1. Thank you, Mr. Larry’s, for bringing that home to us! God bless!

  2. Debbie,

    Thanks. God bless you.

  3. This reminds of what my daughter said recently. She wasn’t sure if her daughter was saved or not. She said, “Mama if it were possible, I would trade places in heaven and go to hell so my daughter could go to heaven. In fact, I pray that God would allow me to do so!” (She knows she can’t.) We talked more, of course, but WOW, talk about demonstrating God’s love for people!!

  4. Ronnye Faye,

    What a great answer. It’s only been recently that I have even prayed these words for myself – even though I am an eternally secure believer in Jesus.
