DAY NINE: TRANSFORMATION FOR INDIVIDUALS, CITIES AND NATIONS
“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” (EZEKIAL 36: 26)
ADORATION: YOU ARE THE GOD WHO TRANSFORMS
“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 THESSALONIANS 5: 23)
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (ROMANS 12: 2)
“Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of the orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.” (ISAIAH 1:16, 17)
“He has shown you o man, what is good and what does the Lord require of you? To do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (MICAH 6: 8)
We repent for living a ‘superficial’ Gospel; ignoring our heart problem and instead being satisfied with our outside appearance.
We repent for ignoring Your call to be agents of transformation by showing Your mercy and justice in our cities and nations.
“You are the light of the world… let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (MATTHEW 5:14-16)
Lord, make us into a people that walk in Your light and shine Your light to the world. We give You the darkest corners of our towns, cities, and nations, knowing only Your Light can bring transformation.
Father, lead us to do good deeds that bless our communities and bring honor to Your Name.
• In the light of God’s beautiful inside transformation, ask the Holy Spirit what area in your heart He wants to transform with His Love.
• As His agent of transformation, bringing justice and mercy to your neighborhood, what is your call to action?
40 Day Prayer for Our Nation: Day Four 09/27/2020 On Day four, of the 40-day of prayer for our nation, we are pondering God’s holy law, the Ten Commandments and the forgiveness that we receive through the Blood of Jesus Christ. Exodus 20:1-17; Hebrews 9:11-15; Hebrews 10:1-10
God’s law is the unwavering standard of righteousness. WE have not been able to keep that standard of our own initiative. God has given us forgiveness through His Son, and the power to walk in true holiness of living by His Grace and by His Spirit.
