Cry out to Him

I really didn’t have a topic this week, but I found myself searching scripture for “plague” last night (probably because of how I felt and being in Revelations) and landed on this Bible verse:

‘If disaster comes upon us—sword, judgment, pestilence, or famine—we will stand before this temple and in Your presence (for Your name is in this temple), and cry out to You in our affliction, and You will hear and save.’
2 Chronicles 20:9 NKJV

What resonated with me was, “cry out to You in our affliction, and You will hear and save.” Do we cry out to God? I know many of my prayers probably sound like I’m reciting a shopping list instead of interceding and petitioning God for the needs of others. When I’m praying for their salvation, I should be crying out with a great passion.

I believe God is trying to get our attention here. We need to unite as the one Church that we are and be a light for the world. We need to be introducing souls to Jesus with a sense of urgency.

Please join me this week in praying for an awakening. Pray that the Church all across the globe recognizes the signs our Father is showing us. (I believe) He’s trying to open our eyes to the urgency and fervor we should have in spreading the gospel. Pray that our hearts and minds will be guided by the Holy Spirit so that we are always about doing our Father’s business, especially during this crucial time. Please pray for revival.
