Wednesday's Word - Let Us Pray

      To quote a familiar tune “What the world needs now, is love, sweet love...” You know what? God IS love. The question then becomes “How can we seek God to meet us at our place of need?” In our technologically advanced society, it seems that we’ve departed so much from the fundamentals that if it’s not a website that we can login to and get the ‘quick cliff notes’ it falls even further away, receiving much less than its appropriate attention.
      Tomorrow, May 1st 2008, is the National Day of Prayer. And in light of the problems facing our world, our nation, our communities, our families and our individual selves, it would be a good thing to look at this day in the same way “Resolutionaries” look at January 1st. To start a Prayer Day resolution – to commit to a quiet time of prayer and meditation that last throughout the year.

Here’s the Word:

2 Chronicles 6: 28 – 31 If there is famine in the land, if there is pestilence, if there is blight or mildew, if there is locust or grasshopper, if their enemies besiege them in the land of their cities, whatever plague or whatever sickness there is, 29 whatever prayer or supplication is made by any man or by all Your people Israel, each knowing his own affliction and his own pain, and spreading his hands toward this house, 30 then hear from heaven Your dwelling place, and forgive, and render to each according to all his ways, whose heart You know for You alone know the hearts of the sons of men, 31 that they may fear You, to walk in Your ways as long as they live in the land which You have given to our fathers.

      There it is. If we want God to answer, we really need to be about prayer. Why would we expect God to be serious about our issues if we’re not? Tomorrow is the National Day of Prayer…but what will you do May 2nd. With the speed at which our religious liberties are deteriorating, the day may not be long from now where we will have to think back to when our government 'used to' let us pray.

Oh yeah! The website.
National Day Of Prayer


In Him,
Cros
