SATURDAY, JANUARY 12TH
PRAY FOR OUR LOST WORLD
Pray for the 3rd largest mission field in the world - The United States of America. Pray for Muslims who need to discover Jesus. Pray for third world countries where our missionaries serve under hostile governments. Pray for our neighbors, friends and relatives who don't know Him. Pray for places in this world where being a Christian is a crime punishable by death.
Psalms 133:1 "How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!" King David wrote this one and I believe that he meant it. He after all had been hunted down for years. Endured strife within his own kingdom that cost the life of his son. He had created enough havoc of his own that any other man would have been executed for. So when he says, "How good and pleasant . . ." He knows what he is talking about.
Strife, contention, disagreement and discord are all word that many make you break out in hives. No one likes to work in or live in a place where unity doesn't exist. Usually though, unity hasn't been misplaced it has been sacrificed. When pide becomes the dominate emotion and battle lines are drawn in our heart - unity will be pushed out of the way to make room for the battle. Pray that God will kepp us humble and that battle lines will be erased before lives are lost in the fray.
