Pray For Repentance
In the event that happened in the media last Sunday, we should be very, very concerned. Worshiping the devil on a stage that was broadcasted all over is simply not acceptable. God is a jealous God and will not share His glory.
Many times in scripture, we find how the Lord was angered by the behavior of men. Defiant and insolent disobedience provokes God's anger and passion. Numbers 11-13 give examples of God's anger burning against the Israelites and the consequence given to them. As the scripture says, "We reap what we sow". We cannot live in rebellion and expect that there will not be any consequences.
We must repent. We have to humble ourselves and ask for forgiveness. Many of us do not agree with the behavior displayed on Sunday night. Those of us that are Christians are left speechless and wonder how this was allowed. Well, we cannot stay speechless! We have to go to God in prayer and repent as a people and as a nation. God is merciful. The Israelites received mercy after Moses and Aaron prayed. God was ready to wipe them out in His exceeding anger. But He didn't. He showed mercy to the people.
We can go to God on behalf of the people. We have the authority in Jesus to intercede and ask for mercy. There will still be consequences, especially for those who behaved so inappropriately.
Take a moment and say this prayer out loud. "Heavenly Father, Friend, and Judge. We come to you in the name of Jesus. We repent for the evil behavior displayed on Sunday night. Please forgive our foolishness. We know that you are Almighty God and no one compares to you. Please do not destroy us. Please show us mercy. As your children, we rise up against the devil and his schemes. May all of his plans be destroyed and come to nothing. We plead the blood of Jesus over the entire nation. Thank you for your goodness, righteousness, and mercy. We pray all of this in the name of Jesus! Amen"
