It is high past time that Christians rediscover the power of repentance, prayer, and humility. We have invented our own programs and leaned on our own reasoning for far too long. Examine the fruits. The plans constructed by our own hands have blown away entirely or are a masquerade of God’s power under the guise of religion. We have a duty to stand and press in to the throne of God for the sake of those who have no advocate. We cannot continue to focus on ourselves and to recoil from prayer as well as the Word of God in this moment. It’s time to pray!
And Mary said:
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.
For He who is mighty has done great things for me,
And holy is His name.
And His mercy is on those who fear Him
From generation to generation.
He has shown strength with His arm;
He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
And exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich He has sent away empty.
He has helped His servant Israel,
In remembrance of His mercy,
As He spoke to our fathers,
To Abraham and to his seed forever.”
