If all regenerate church members in Western Christendom were to intercede daily simply for…
…the most obvious spiritual concerns visible in their homes, their workplaces, their local churches and denominations, their nations, and the world and the total mission of the body of Christ within it,…
…the transformation which would result would be incalculable.
Not only would God certainly change those situations in response to prayer – we have Christ’s word that if we ask in his name he will do more than we ask or think – but the church’s comprehension of its task would attain an unprecedented sharpness of focus.
Perhaps much of our prayer now should simply be for God to pour out such a spirit of prayer and supplication in the hearts of his people.
Question for Reflection
