40 DAYS OF PRAYER FOR OUR NATION – DAY 27 | 10/20/2020


SCRIPTURES: Jeremiah 50:6a “My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains…”

Ezekiel 34:2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

John 10:10-11 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

THOUGHTS: The Word of God warns of false prophets, false teachers, corrupt priests, and false apostles, etc. These insert themselves into position and become predators of those they should protect. This was a problem in the Old Testament, the New Testament, through the ages and also in our time.

In John 10:1-18, Jesus called these false workers, robbers, thieves and hirelings. He spoke of those who have no loyalty to Him, to His Word nor to the feeding and protection of the people of God.

PRAYER: Dear LORD, we repent for gathering to ourselves leaders after the vanities of our own hearts. We cry out for men and women who are leaders after Your own heart. Those who will cry out and spare not. Those who are not ashamed of Your Word.

We repent for our leadership choices of the past. We submit to Your authority and to the leaders You place in our lives. In Jesus’ Name.

Turn us around LORD, that we as a nation turn back to the source from which we came. Let it be a Sovereign work of Your own hand to turn this nation around. In Jesus’ Name. AMEN!

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
