Most children who have wandered away have had an encounter with Jesus. One does not forget an encounter with Jesus. The distance for each to return is the same, no matter how steeped in sin we feel they are. It will matter little how far away one is from Christ when He returns, the result will be the same.
Jesus stated in the book of Revelation how little he cared for to the church at Laodicea, that He would that they were neither hot nor cold, but rather lukewarm, and for their lukewarmness they would be spewed out of his mouth (Rev 3:14-22)
Today there is a stirring, a reviving, and a renewing of the cry of parents for their children. We need a change in our cities and our nation, but that begins with the restoration of the family. It is about our sons and daughters. It is breaking the chains and demonic strongholds off of our children.
We must have persistent, passionate, and bold prayers for the vision we have received. The vision that includes the return of that which has been taken or that which was promised to us. The Bible overflows with these precious promises. His word will accomplish what it is intended to accomplish. J eremiah 1:11-12
It’s high time that we band together, in a unified force, and reclaim what is rightfully ours and promised by God.
What brings our victory? God didn’t use sleek marketing or celebrities or TV programs to accomplish His vision.
Instead this battle is won in the trenches of our prayer rooms, prayer closets, and our obedience to the Holy Spirit. It is a battle against an enemy who seems to have entrenched himself, deep in the hearts of our children.
There is no defense against prayer.
Joshua faced a similar battle over the future generations and the promises of God. He arrived at Jericho, a well-fortified city, that seemed to have a defense for every area of attack. In Joshua 6:12 and 15, we read: 12AndJoshuaroseearlyinthemorning,andtheprieststookupthearkoftheLord.15Butitcametopasson the seventh day that they rose early, about the dawning of the day, and marched around the city seven times in the same manner. On that day only they marched around the city seven times. They had the promise and the instruction, so they arose early in the morning.
Let’s take back the break of day and bombard the enemy and the heavens with prayers early. The enemy has no defense against prayer.
