Bobby Thornhill, Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land that I should not destroy it; but I found no one." Eze- kiel 22:30 "He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor..." Isaiah 59:16a (NKJV) In these two passages we find that God is dismayed at the lack of a man interested enough in the situation at hand to "stand in the gap" for Israel. To intercede is one of our greatest responsibilities as Christians. The Apostle Paul gives us much instruc- tion concerning our respon- sibility to pray for others, teaching us to "pray always," to "pray without ceasing," and to pray for our leaders that all may go well for us. At a time when our Nation is sinking deeper and deeper into the abyss and chaos of sin, much of which is forced upon us from the highest levels of our leadership, are we turning to God in prayer? Are we standing in the gap, interceding for our country, for our Churches, for our families? Are we literally, through our prayers, bridg- ing the gap between those who would lead us down a wrong path and our God? It is as though the connec- tion between this Country and God is being severed. Are we genuinely concerned, concerned enough to seek God's face in prayer instead of always praying for some material blessing? It is the responsibility of those of us who call our- selves Christians to pray, to stand in the gap for our Country. Are you that man. or woman who will make a difference?
