I do not have to convince you that our society needs prayer. Just look around. Yet, I believe that God can heal our land if we humble ourselves and pray and seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways (2 Chronicles 7:14). For we do not fight against flesh and blood but against the powers of this dark world (Ephesians 6:12).
2 Timothy 4:3 says, “For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.”
This writing is not a devotion but a rallying cry to all my brothers and sisters in Christ. The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. We must wake up from our slumber and get on the battle field.
We must stand in prayer.
Stand in Prayer
Leonard Ravenhill, the author of Why Revival Tarries says, “The people who are not praying are straying and that no man is greater than his prayer life.” Godlessness is increasing in our society. This is the mark of a shifting culture in the last days. As believers of Jesus Christ, we must stand in prayer. We have work to do.
Prayer is not only communion with God; it is also confrontation with the enemy. We must acknowledge that we are in a spiritual battle and pray over situations we know is under attack from the devil (Highlands). Please join me in prayer:
Prayer for You and I: We stand on Your Word. The enemy is driven out from us; from our homes, workplaces, church families, children, and loved ones. I declare that he is not able to stand against us.
No weapon formed against us will prosper, because the Spirit of the Lord is with us, protecting us. We declare these truths in the Name of Jesus. Amen. (Adapted Prayer from Highlands)
