Reassure the Righteous

The verses God showed me did not make sense – until I went to church. We had an old-fashioned prayer meeting, just like the ones of my youth. I could picture my Grandma W. kneeling at the chair beside me. I remember her pouring her heart out to God.

We prayed verses right out of the Bible. First for “Nations and Continents” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2; Proverbs 2:10-15; Psalms 68:11; Luke 10-12.

Isaiah 3:4, “He says, ‘I’ll put little kids in charge of the city. Schoolboys and schoolgirls will order everyone around.’ ” The Message

Second, we prayed for “Unity and Harmony” – 1 John 5:14-15; 1 Corinthians 1:10; Matthew 6:10; 18:19; Ephesians 4:2-3; 1 Peter 3:8-9; John 17:22-23.

Isaiah 3:12, “Skinny kids terrorize my people. Silly girls bully them around. My dear people! Your leaders are taking you down a blind alley. They’re sending you off on a wild-goose chase.” The Message

Finally, we prayed for “The People of Our Land” – Luke 21:11, 25-26; Matthew 5:5; 16:3; 26:41; James 4:10; 5:16; 1 Peter 3:4; Psalms 139:23; Isaiah 6:6-7; 1 Timothy 2:1; John 7:38; Revelations 22:1-2.

Isaiah 3:10, “Reassure the righteous that their good living will pay off.” The Message
