Will You Pray?
Read Ezekiel 21:1 through 24:27
Published: Aug 16, 2017
Kevin couldn’t believe the corruption all around him, but no one seemed concerned. What had happened to the Christian values that set the tone for his life as a child? Even guys who’d gone to Sunday school with him were surrendering to sin.
Andy, who managed a factory, joked about his employees working under dangerous conditions. Pete was proud of the six-figure salary he earned while running a mortgage scam. Richard, who was a counselor, shared confidential information about his clients.
As Kevin watched society’s moral fiber crumbling, he prayed diligently and encouraged others to pray.
“I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one” (Ezekiel 22:30).
In Ezekiel’s day, God didn’t find intercessors to pray for Israel. Everyone was too preoccupied with sin. Their actions forced Him to send utter devastation, so that His people might see their depravity and turn back to Him.
Challenge for Today: Be one of the Christians who are willing to pray for your nation and its people.
