I am so excited to share with you the picture AND the Word from the Lord that was sent to me from Julie Walker, a prayer warrior and mother of missionary daughters. Will you join me and “see” what Julie saw?
While on a sunset walk at Dolphin Bay Beach, Thailand with my daughter Joy, I saw this fisherman’s boat in the moonlight with a silhouette of a cross. The Holy Spirit reminded me of Jesus’ words in John 9:4 that a night is coming when no one can do the Father’s work. Jesus left us with a sense of urgency to be about our Father’s business because Jesus is coming soon. He also left us followers with the Holy Spirit’s power to do His work until He comes.
On this National Day of Prayer for our nation, let us unite our hearts in prayer with other followers of Jesus to do His work on the sunset of His return.
Anne Graham Lotz shared her prayer for our nation on the first day of 2016. Let us join our hearts with her in praying for our nation.
“I know the night is coming when work for You will cease. Help me to redeem the time. Use me for your kingdom and your glory. Open my lips to boldly and fearlessly make known the gospel: the good news of redemption for the past….hope for the future….joy for the present regardless of circumstances….love that is unconditional, boundless, and eternal…found at the Cross. Open my lips to just give Jesus to a world that is increasingly desperate. Use me as an ambassador of peace on earth by first leading people to a right relationship with you, then with each other. When the world around me unravels, help me to stand strong on my faith in you. And when people see me standing strong, help them to see you.” Prayer by Anne Graham Lotz
