It becomes more evident with each passing day that we as a society learned nothing from reading the Old Testament Scriptures. The people flourished when they walked with God. It did not go so well when they abandoned God. The cycle is repeated time and time again. How can we expect the blessing of God when we make it clear that the Ten Commandments are simply suggestions to be ignored?
Attending today's event impacted me in a different way than what I had anticipated. These outdoor prayer events frequently remind me of a pep rally. It really isn't all that prayerful, but it is good to see people come together with the idea of praying as the Body of Christ. That is what I was expecting, and it is what I experienced. However, the protesters got my attention. They made me realize that my prayer life has lacked fervor in praying for those who are lost. I walk away from today's event with a conviction knowing that I have room to grow significantly in this area. Do I truly care about those who are lost? If so, what do I do about it?
Politicians won't save us. Social media won't save us. Money won't save us. It is God who saves us through His Son, Jesus, in the power of the Holy Spirit. Let us root ourselves in prayer, and then meet each day with the courage to fulfill our purpose as God leads us into the mission field of our day-to-day lives.
Blessings and peace!
