PRAYER CHANGES the world around us! Our prayers don’t change God, but He designed it so that He works through our prayers.
Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee.” That means we’ve got to call. Those are the rules of prayer that God has set down! Our prayers bring things to pass that wouldn’t have come into existence if we did not pray.
God is interested in the entire world and wants us to pray. But where we have the most authority is where we live—whatever nation that may be. So it’s important that we each take our place in our own nation.
30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
It’s time for us to stand in the gap! First Peter 4:7 (NLT) says, “The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore, be earnest and disciplined in your prayers.” We don’t always become earnest in our prayers until it affects us. But it’s so important that we get serious about our commitment and responsibility.
Are you willing to do that? Will you answer the call to stand in the gap? The enemy is on a warpath. We are in spiritual warfare! We must focus and fully intercede for our nation so God’s will is accomplished. As we recognize that and do what God told us to do, we will see change!
