Today’s Prayer (08/17/2020)

Oh Lord, I pray that people in all the world, who are Christian, will also read the Bible for themselves. So many of them are listening to their pastors and that is what is carrying them forward during the week. However, if there is nothing said about the importance of doing Your will and having good works in our lives, then people will continue living their own lives apart from You. And I would hate to see these same people die one day and stand before You in judgment, while they hear You say, “I never knew You.” This would be terrible and so awful. So many of them would say, but I did what the pastor of my church said throughout the week. I did my best to worship You on Sundays and learn from You that day. However, what they don’t realize is that our everyday walk apart from You, God, are distancing themselves from You. So if people are spending most of their time doing their own things and finding less time for You, oh Lord, then I wonder if they are even saved at all. I know that baptism is a big deal in people’s lives, but I often wonder what people are doing afterward. Is there any change in their lives because of knowing You? Lord, please come and convict these people of their sins. I am afraid that the majority of people are not going to repent unless they are taught about this in church. This is what saddens me, for if people would just realize that turning from their sins and following You is the best thing we can do in life. This is true faith and not faith that is dead. Lord, Your ways lead to eternal life. Therefore, I have decided to reach out to You daily in prayer, reading the Bible, and going out and doing Your will for mankind. I love You, God. Amen.
