"Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:18-20
As Christians, we believe God will listen to the honest repentance and confession of sins from one person on behalf of a group. Does this mean that someone who has faith in God can supplicate to restore a nation, church family, organization, group, or person back to the blessing and favor of God? Absolutely!
If you believe that one person can offer supplication to God on behalf of others, then what are YOU waiting for?
-You may just be the one that God is waiting to hear from! Your personal confession and repentance for the sins of both yourself and others may be exactly what God needs to restore your family, nation, church, organization, or group back into God’s favor. Don’t bother to spend time looking around, waiting for others to step up to the plate. God’s Grace is never full. It just might be YOU who God is waiting for!
Find the time today to pray for your family, friends, neighbors, and even that perfect stranger who is sitting right next to you on the bus; because, whether they know it or not, your prayer may be exactly what they need today. L.
