“It’s Me, It’s Me, Oh Lord!”
So often when we pray for our church, we pray in a very generalized sense. We pray for the lost, we pray for the sick, we pray for the missionaries, etc. All of these are good and we should be faithful to uphold them before the Lord.
When it comes to praying for the spiritual needs of the church, we usually pray for a rather ambiguous “them”. “Lord, help those people do right.”
Do we really have the right, though, to ask God to do something in the lives of others that we are not willing to first ask Him to do in our own heart? A children’s church song from years gone by says, “It’s me, it’s me Oh Lord, standing in the need of prayer.”
We desperately need a move of God in our church. It’s not as far away as you might think. All you have to do is let God start it in you.
