1 Samuel 12:23 (KJV) Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way.
“This country is a mess!” Joy said, “nothing is working, the leaders are wicked and unconcerned, they are all out to enrich themselves”. “It is well my sister” replied Peace. “But sister Peace, are you not tired of this country?” Joy asked. “How can I be tired when I have no other country to call my own. We will cope by God’s grace” Peace replied.
Many Christians are like these sisters; they identify the problem and complain but do nothing about it.
By abiding in Christ, we are kings and priests (see Revelation1:6), this also means that we have duties to perform and one of such duties is interceding for our nations. In Matthew 6:10 (KJV), Jesus commanded that we pray that God’s kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
You see, you must do more than to identify and complain about the problems, you must deal with them by interceding. It is after interceding that the right authority to teach and correct the wrongdoings will be granted by God (see 1 Samuel 12:23).
You must come to that point where like Samuel, you can say, ‘‘God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for my Nation’’.
Go into today knowing that it is your duty as a child of God to pray for your country.
Prayer: Lord, forgive me for not taking intercession for my country as seriously as I should. From now going forward, help me intercede for my Nation.
