Pray for Others
So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.
God wants us to be intercessors. To stand in the gap. A city fortified by a wall has a sense of security and protection. But, if there is a breach, a gap, it becomes vulnerable. We too have vulnerabilities. The devil looks for these gaps to attack us. It may be a weakness, a relationship (a bad one, tension within one, heartache), struggles at work, home, church, health, finances, decisions, feeling guilty or pride, lack of confidence, being complacent or rebellious, sin in your life, and the list goes on. Do not be afraid to share that vulnerability with someone. You don’t have to go through it alone. Also, seek those who are struggling and pray for them.
