The faithful prayers of one godly person can change the destiny of a nation. In 1 Samuel 7:5-9, the people of Israel were facing an enemy invasion and pleaded with the prophet Samuel to intercede before the Lord for them. Samuel said he would only do so if they would stop worshipping idols and repent of their sins. When they did, Samuel cried out to God on their behalf and the Lord saved them from their enemies. That’s nation shaking prayer! I’m Pastor Jeff Bass of the River Christian Center and that’s the bottom line because the Word of God says so.
God is looking for an individual who will “stand in the gap” or in other words intercede on behalf of His people and plead their case before Him so they will not be destroyed. God is looking for people who will listen to His perspective on the news and respond by “standing in the gap.” Through prayer we can help establish and restore God’s eternal purposes for the nations of the world.
