There are two passages of Scripture I came through in my reading this week that describe what I am “seeing” in prayer during this time in our culture and the American Church.
His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire. (Matt. 3:12)
Reading for today:
Psalm 51; 69:1-23
2 Cor. 1:1-7
Her foes have become her masters;
her enemies are at ease.
The Lord has brought her grief
because of her many sins…
Lord, we are blind and our blindness is simply stunning. All the advantages have been afforded us and we have become lost in our own comfort and abundance. We are desperately in trouble and do not see it. Heal us of our blindness. Tough us with your healing power so we can see before it’s too late and we wake up only to realize our enemy isn’t worried about us anymore. In this Holy Week, please favor us with a healing touch so our eyes are opened. Lead us to the cross.
