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.
Proverbs 10:21 says, the lips of the righteous feed many but fools die for want of wisdom. That same verse in the Moffatt translation reads, but a fool’s lack of sense is death to himself. Today, many people lack common sense and it causes them much grief. They lack the sense to make proper, clear and correct choices. Are you thinking about the decisions you make? Do you ask yourself if you are using common sense? While this may seem so obvious, it is clear that many lack this basic attribute. It’s wise to use common sense before you leap!
