Nations in your hands
Today, our mandate from the Lord is to earnestly pray for our country. The Holy Spirit does impress this point upon me/you now as never before. This is an urgent message that must be conveyed to every child of God. The welfare of our nation is indeed in our hands. We are responsible for the welfare of our country. You are born in this country for the Lord’s specific purpose. The Lord wants us to be patriotic towards the nation that supports us. Christ cried out for Jerusalem. Paul chose to be cursed to save his countrymen. Daniel opened the window three times everyday and prayed. The patriots, prophets, and stalwarts including Ezra Nehemiah, and Esther prayed for their native countries. How can I face the destruction of my own people? Was their lament.
Today, the Lord wants us to travail for our country. Terrorism abounds. Divorce rates are mounting high. Racism is on the increase.
Pornography has become quite common. Men are crazy after money and materials. Premarital sex and abortions are common even among the teenagers. Atheism is widely spread. Homosexual marriages are legally accepted. People have indirectly asked God to step out of their families, educational institution and the like.
Fighting between political parties has reached an all time low standard. Everyone is at odds with one another. The enemies of the Lord seem to be, becoming stronger as the days go by. Telecommunication channels and inter net are the tools of the devil. Evil forces are becoming more and more courageous in coming against Christ and His church. Gangsters, who were very rare in earlier days, have been institutionalized now. The country is filled with every kind of abomination and injustice. The people are at a total loss.
We cannot blame the people, or our leaders, for our state of affairs. The liability rest squarely on our shoulders. Our failure to pray for the welfare of our country has brought this nation to its lowest level. There is no escape from total destruction unless we, the children of God raise our voices to the Lord. Unless and until we intercede for our nation, the country will certainly be turned into the ‘Dead Sea’.
Either the country will know its God, or it will die. We must realize that the country has not received its true freedom. We are yet to receive our freedom from the spirits of darkness, from the abominable idolatry, from the spirits of murder, fornication, and adultery. As days go by, the country is sinking deeper into the mire. Any child of God who is not seriously concerned about this will certainly be accountable to God.
