Please Pray with Me

The Psalmist realized his nation faced serious problems. Their only hope was to turn to God, acknowledge their sins, and plead to Him for mercy.

Like the Psalmist, we can be confident that God desires to help us. To save and revive us. But there is a condition: We must not “turn again to folly” (v. 8). We must turn from our sins and seek His presence.

Like the Psalmist, we can know that, when God blesses us, there will be mercy, righteousness, and peace in the land. There will be blessing, and the land will yield an increase. But for this to take place, we need His forgiveness. We need His favor. His blessing.

Today is the National Day of Prayer in the U.S. This is in remembrance of the importance of prayer. A reminder to pray for your country, your leaders, and the needs of your people.

Today, spend time seeking God for your country. Pray for leaders and politicians. For judges and local officials. Pray for business and military leaders. Pray for pastors and churches.

Pray that God would give all of us wisdom and reveal Himself to us in fresh ways. And pray that He would forgive our sins, be merciful to us, and revive us again.

God bless you,
