PRAY HARD PART 2

If the date of salvation is already fixed by God, then why should I pray hard?

PRAY HARD PART 2


Numbers 16 in the Bible gives us an account of God’s wrath and how ‘ONLY’ prayer can change a situation.  Even after the bunch of Korah group were swallowed in earth quake, even after they witnessed first-hand the results of rebellion; yet, the Israelites murmured, verse 41 ‘But on the next day all the congregation of the sons of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron….” OMG! Can people be so hardhearted and brash to talk against the servants of God after witnessing such catastrophes?  When they did that, God commanded Moses and Aaron to get away so that He could kill them, but Moses tells Aaron, "Take your censer and put in it fire from the altar, and lay incense on it; then bring it quickly to the congregation and make atonement for them, for wrath has gone forth from the LORD, the plague has begun!"  This part is crucial, hear me:

Numbers 16:47”Aaon ran into the midst of the assembly, for behold, the plague had (already)begun among the people…” (so, any slowing down on your part is going to affect the sinners..)  Listen to this, the plague stopped after Aaron prayed; nonetheless, 14,700 had already died.  I remember an incident, I preached exactly the same message with passion and tears rolling down my cheek in one of our FIRE CAMPS; at the end of the message, we received a call from the family of one of the participants saying, ‘her father committed suicide by consuming poison.’ Pray fervently for the lost ones, don’t delay !

Yes, only after Hannah got up from her seat of complacency and prayed intensely and forcefully, was she able to conceive Samuel.  Are you hearing me?  Flippant, nonchalant, powerless prayer achieves nothing, remember when your situation is grim and serious, you got to pray more and press more. Can I remind you of the prayer of Jesus at Gethsemane, “And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.”(Luke 22:44)
