We Must Pray and Not Faint

| fri, november 7, 2008 |

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: and there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? Luke 18:1-8

Praise God! We serve the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. My fellow brothers and sisters we are entering into a day and hour prophised by the prophets of old and the watchmen of our current day. We are to be viligent, constantly preparing ourselves for the return of our Savior Jesus Christ.

We should pray always, and not be faint. As I sit here my heart is heavy for the souls of those who have yet to decide to live for truth. I feel heavy knowing that the course and direction of this great nation continues it's slippery slide down a slope of compermissed ungodly moral standard. Our nation needs prayer, our people need prayer, our pastors and churches need prayer.

We should not be taken back by the events we see, whether it is the economy, war, or the rise of moral deficiency. We have been told of these times, we have been warned the days of Noah and Lot would once again return. Take a good look around, spend 45 mins reading various news source with up to date world events. Sin and the moral destruction it causes has permeated the very bowels of our nation, causing this disease to affect and destroy the very system we once used to digest truth and the nutrition it provides to our spiritual bodies.

The individuals that make up this great nation once under God are unknowingly desiring a gut check. For every action there will be a reaction, the action of lowering, intentionally lower, willfully lowering the moral standards will result in the reaction of God's swift judgment and correction. It is God who will deciede through His divine justice how to correct man, we can only pray our fellow man will receive this correcton with immediate repentance. Keep in mind, we are all sinners and have all fallen short of the glory of God, this is why we must continue to pray for the souls of the lost.

I encourage us all to find more time to pray for our family and friends, our church, our nation, the world, and the leaders we elect to run our ruin the governments in which they have been entrusted. We must trust in God, our mortal minds will never fully understand God's will, we can only understand that which He allows us to grasp, but our faith in Him and His divinely perfect will must make up what we cannot grasp. Our God has NEVER let His Children down. He will surely not begin to now.

God Bless, daniel
