Daniel 9:19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.
Daniel cried out to the Lord for the children of Israel in a time when they were in bondage and it seemed there was no hope, and no way out. However, as we know today there was hope, and God delivered them.
As believers in this same God, should not we be praying this same prayer today for our nation, which is now in the grips of sinful lifestyles and disobedience to God’s Word?
“O Lord, hear”…. However, God does not hear if we are not
talking. We need to be in prayer for our nation.
“O Lord, forgive”…. In our talking, we need to repent for not
always taking Him seriously and the Word of God as our
“O Lord, hearken and do; defer not”…. As God leads, we
should be following.
There is precious little time left. For thy people who are called by thy name…. Christians. Christians, if we do not do what is right, who will?
It is far past time to simply pray. It is time to beg and plead with God for His mercy on a sinful people. For His grace toward those who have disobeyed. Thankfully, He has always loved us, and He always will. However, we dare not confuse His love with a tolerance for sin. It is time to PRAY!
