“And I sought a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none. Therefore have I poured out My indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; their own way have I repaid upon their own heads, says the Lord God.” (Ezekiel 22:30-31)
This is a mandate to all believers to pray and stand in the gap for the lost and backslidden. And also for our nation. God does not want to bring judgment; He chooses mercy and love above all else. So He looks for intercessors; for those who are willing to pray for mercy on people.
Who knows what can happen when we begin to intercede for someone? Everyone has someone in their life who desperately needs Jesus. Every one of us can pull someone to the forefront of our mind right now that we know is lost and headed for hell.
God sees it too. He wonders when someone will begin to pray for that person. Beloved, begin to pray for that one person today. You never know but that YOUR prayers will be instrumental in their salvation..and that is a treasure in heaven for YOU. A sinner saved is a precious, precious thing to God. Begin today to pray…He is looking for you..
