A Praying People

“And when I looked, behold, a hand was stretched out to me, and behold, a scroll of a book was in it. And he spread it before me. And it had writing on the front and on the back, and there were written on it words of lamentation and mourning and woe. And he said to me, Son of man, eat whatever you find here. Eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.” (Ezek. 2:9-3:1 ESV)
Our nation is overran by evil and violence. We as Christians have a responsibility to pray. We are called to pray for our families, communities, nations, and churches. We are called to be a people of prayer. A people that like Ezekiel can receive Gods Word for our generation. We must be willing to hear Gods Word of lament, mourning, and woe to our generation. We must hear God speak, and then we speak. This is what we are called to do as Christians. We have a responsibility to every nation that we have been placed in. We have a responsibility to every community that we have been placed in. We have a responsibility to every family we have been placed in. We have a responsibility to every church we have been placed in. This responsibility is to pray.
Paul’s writing continually reminds us to consistently pray. The prophets of old prophesied of a day when the Spirit of supplication and grace would be poured out. This is our day, we have been made a Holy Priesthood, a peculiar people. We are all called to pray, called and empowered to make a difference.
Let us be found like Ezekiel, in communion with the Lord, allowing Him to share with us what is on His heart for this nation, our community, our families, and our churches.
In light of the different things that I see occurring, I am writing this so that at least one person will see it and incline their ears to the Lord. The Lord wants to speak.
