Lord, Do Away With All Sin!
Lord, please come soon and rescue us from this vile, sin-sick world. It is just too mind-boggling at times. We can scarcely take all the suffering and woe. We long to behold your lovely face. With you is where we want to be. To ever be in your presence will bring us such pleasure.
Heavenly Father, may your Holy Spirit touch every man, woman, boy and girl on this earth right now, helping them to recognize their need of Jesus Christ. May your Holy Spirit, help them to comprehend that this world is going down, and it is going down quickly. Make it possible for every man, woman, boy and girl, to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Give them such a heartfelt desire to surrender their lives fully to Him. Please, Father, soften their hearts and give them hearts of flesh. “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26
So many in this world are suffering from want. Heavenly Father supply all their needs, today. “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 Please, heal their bodies and give them comfort and strength. Let your will be done in their lives. “And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.” James 5:15
“For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord…” Jeremiah 30:17
This sinfulness of man is so horrifying. We cannot believe what people around the world are doing to their fellowmen. You tell us to pray for our enemies. “ Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you…” Matthew 5:43, 44 Holy Spirit, put into our enemies minds their need of change, and their need of Jesus Christ. They are God’s children, too. Satan has them so blind. Eliminate their blindness and remove their stony hearts. Please, help them to be considerate and loving to their fellowmen.
Oh, heavenly Father, make each day go faster and faster. Get a people ready for your coming, now. Send us the Latter Rain! “Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain…” Zechariah 10:1 Friend, isn’t that what we need is the Latter Rain, which means during the growing season of our grain the early rain is needed to make the grain grow and the latter rain is needed at the end of the growing season to make the grain ripe and ready for the harvest? Isn’t that what we need, right now? We need the Latter Rain to make us Christians ripe and ready for the Supreme Harvest, when Jesus comes in the clouds of glory to take us home. We need our Lord to make the necessary changes in our lives to make us ripe and ready for the Great Harvest at the end of world. Just like all grain needs the latter rain to make the necessary changes in the grain to make it ready for the harvest, we need it, too. And, help us, heavenly Father, to spread your gospel with such power, wisdom and strength. Give us a double portion of your Holy Spirit and Grace.
In the name of our loving Jesus Christ, Amen.
