Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- April 28

Dear Lord, in a recent national poll, 89% of us called ourselves Christians. Today, let us reflect on just how far we have strayed from following Your Word, as we read the words of one of Your disciples. ... William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army once prophesied that a time would come when we would see: (1) Christianity without Christ, (2) salvation without His blood, and (3) religion without the Holy Spirit. ... We need to ask, are too many ministers trying to "sanitize" the Bible so that it won't offend anyone, making it compatible with society's demands? Are too many professors in our universities and seminaries trying to explain the Bible by their own reasoning, leaving out the sovereignty of God and the supernatural spiritual dimension? ... Oh Lord, forgive us all for not reading Your Word for ourselves, and for not allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us into an understanding of Your truth.* Save us, Lord, from our own arrogance.

In Jesus' name we pray.
