What would it be like: to have our nation on its knees in prayer? For our city to be a home of refuge? For church congregations to be a place of healing? For our households to be dwellings of His presence? For us to have an intimacy with God that finds us prostrate in awe and reverence? What would it be like if we passionately pursued God just because of who He is and not for what He can do for us?
As I step into 2018, with 2017’s prayers still fresh in my mind, the ones that got answered, still dealing with the disappointment of seemingly unanswered prayers, can I believe God is really my Father and cares for every detail of my life? Am I ready to trust God no matter what the circumstances look like? Am I ready to give time to pursue intimacy with God?
Are we, as a church, corporately and individually, ready to go deeper into prayer? To sacrifice time and energy in the holy place? Perhaps, more importantly, to be passionately committed to meeting with the living God?
