Read Ezekiel 21-24
Is there any point of the reading you could turn into a prayer?
““I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.”
God when you look for someone, here I am, Lord let my actions build people up, let my life stand in the gap, like Christ, calling forgiveness down upon those doing harm, Lord let my life interrupt destruction. In Jesus name, Christ in me, to really help. Amen
“Why do we love to read the Scriptures daily? Because they speak to us of home. Why do we live differently from those around us? Because we remember that we are soon going home (1 Peter 4: 1–7). Why are we willing to suffer and even die for our faith? Because we are sure of what we hope for and certain that to be with God, even through pain, is better by far than to be comfortable without him (Heb. 11: 1–2, 13–16).”
