....I have known this. But today it is real. I just look at the news today and it's ALL about Israel and my heart is full. I have found myself praying the prayer over and over "God, tell me what time it is. What time IS it??". My boys and I prayed for Israel today. We knelt down, joined hands and prayed for the peace of Jerusalem. I know that prayer will fully be answered only when He comes, but ohmygoodness, how we can not carry that nation in intercession now? They are in trouble. And that means the world is in trouble. It's time for a breakout of solemn assemblies. The solution is not in the UN delegation being sent, it's not in the military power of the IDF or even the forces of their allies. It's in the prayers of the saints and the mercy of Almighty God.
It was moving this afternoon to hear my little Zion pray, "I bless them to know the Lord their God". He was obviously thinking deeply about it. He knows his name and how it relates to the promises of God and the future of his kingdom. He also knows his name means "Israel" so when I showed him the pics of war he was sober. Sometimes I wonder what kind of intercessor I am really raising.......and then I have to stop thinking because it's too much.
These are the days of a new generation on the earth. Those fascinated only by Him and willing to pour themselves out in prayer like water on the ground. It's not a waste -- it's our only hope.
