Humble Prayer

1 Corinthians 10:11 11 These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come. (NIV)

As 1/3 of my daily Bible reading comes from the Old Testament, I am reminded of God’s anger against those who refused to honor, worship and respect Him.  Entire groups of people suffered from the stubbornness of their leaders.  We, too, are being complacent in following our leaders.  We are allowing laws to be passed that are against the commands of God. So many of us just raise our hands and say, what can we do about it?  We have the strongest weapon available to mankind.  We have prayer.  God promised to heal our land if we would only humble ourselves and pray.  Prayer is more than lifting up a few words and asking God to heal our land or work within our leaders.  Prayer is real conversation.  Two-way conversation.  How much do we want our land healed?  Enough to not only really petition God but enough to offer ourselves in any way He will work through us?  Each of us must ask ourselves if we are really humbling ourselves before God, if we are really wanting our nation healed (this applies to all nations.).  We must pray as intensely as Jesus prayed in the garden before His crucifixion.  He spent time pleading with the Father.  He ended giving Himself to the Father’s will.  Let us follow His example.
