God said to Moses, "I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I am has sent me to you.'"
Have you ever been given a task to accomplish which you thought impossible? Maybe, it was because of time constraints? Too many things on your plate to consume? The extra helping which begs discarding before you suffer an uncomfortable night of indigestion?
Or, was it a lack of confidence in your ability to follow through? To get the job done?
We've all been there, haven't we? Life's pressures weigh upon us even in the best of times. No matter how much we strive to do the right thing and meet the expectations of others in our families, our work, our church, we cannot stand up to the task at hand unless we're first willing to kneel.
In prayer. Asking for God's guidance. His wisdom. His protection. His grace.
To learn humbly at His feet how much He wants to hear our prayers. How He longs for a loving relationship with us. How having this rapport with Him can literally change the world for the coming of His Kingdom.
Former Arkansas Governor, Mike Huckabee, has issued a plea to all of us to stop what we're doing and drop to our knees in prayer on January 20th. He is concerned, as I am, that while our leaders don't seem to be listening to us, they just might listen to God when He calls, shows up, stands in their presence.
The following is Gov. Huckabee's invitation to join him in prayer this Sunday:
Join me for "A Day to Pray", where we will ask God to grant our leaders, from the local school houses to the White House, the wisdom they need for the road ahead. We will gather to ask God for forgiveness and healing of our land and to bless our country and her people. This will not be a political rally, but a spiritual event, and hopefully one that can help bring us together as we move forward as a nation.
Will you accept the invitation from Gov. Huckabee? No matter where you live around the globe, will you pray that God will speak to the hearts of your elected officials? Convict the hearts of your leaders to answer to the Lord and ignore the lure of worldly power?
Will you, through prayer, send God to their hearts, their minds and their souls?
Will you, through prayer, tell them, "I AM sent me to you"?
Let us pray:
Father, let us join with millions around the world this Sunday to pray for our leaders and our countries. May our prayers find favor in your sight. May your presence shine upon those who need to know You and create in them a servant's heart. Amen.
