Week 3 – March 26-April 2
Pray for the Nations
9 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
In Revelation 7, we are given an extraordinary glimpse into a vision of the throne room of our God and King. And what do we see there? People. Lots and lots and lots of people – more than you could count. And they’re singing and shouting in the presence of God Himself!!! Can you imagine! Joining together with people from every nation, every tribe, every people and every language and singing and shouting for joy in the presence of our Savior King!!! Salvation belongs to Him and to Him belongs the blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might forever and ever!
And some people have never even heard His Name.
Some people don’t even know somebody who has heard His Name.
King of kings; Lord of lords; Savior of the world…unnamed and unknown by so many.
We have to go. We have to give. And we have to pray. This week, please pray that we would be moved by this reality. Pray that God would continue to call people from Lifepoint for long-term international service. Pray that those people would be emboldened by the Holy Spirit to live out that calling. Pray for our college students, that they would prayerfully consider spending a summer or a semester during this season of their lives for the Kingdom overseas. Finally, pray that God would stir in us an incredible desire to serve Him in His mission to redeem people from every tribe, every tongue, and every people…knowing that we will one day stand and worship with them before the Lamb!!!
