Lord, what will it take for Your church to come to the stark realization for the need to stand as one for Your principles? Do we need to see evil overthrow goodness in the nations? Do we need for outrage to come into our communities? Do we need to see our loved ones falling away? Do we need signs and miracles? Do we need to fall in reverence for who You are? Do we need to seek You and learn your attributes to know just who calls us? Do we need to ask ourselves the pertinent question, “What am I to do with this Jesus?” I pray for repentance and awakening in Your powerful name and authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“He took a yoke of oxen and cut them in pieces and sent them throughout all the territory of Israel by the hand of the messengers, saying, ‘Whoever does not come out after Saul and Samuel, so shall it be done to his oxen!’ Then the dread of the Lord fell upon the people, and they came out as one man.” (1 Samuel 11:7 ESV)
