A Kairos Moment
Let us pray.
Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty expanse. Praise Him for His mighty deeds; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness…Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!
Father in heaven, examine and probe our ways. Let our words and our thoughts be acceptable in Your sight.O Lord take away our sins; be gracious to us and receive us and accept our sacrifice of praise.
Awake sinners and weep and wail. Consecrate a fast. Proclaim a solemn assembly; Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land to the house of the Lord your God and cry out to the LORD. Blow a trumpet in our land and sound an alarm. Help us return to You with all our hearts, spare Your people and our country, O Lord.
It is written: “At the acceptable time I listened to you, and on the day of salvation I helped you.” Behold, now is “the acceptable time,” behold, now is “the day of salvation” – giving no cause for offense in anything, so that the ministry will not be discredited, but in everything commending ourselves as servants of God, in much endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses, in beatings, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in hunger, in purity, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in genuine love, in the word of truth, in the power of God; by the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and the left, by glory and dishonor, by evil report and good report; regarded as deceivers and yet true; as unknown yet well-known, as dying yet behold, we live; as punished yet not put to death, as sorrowful yet always rejoicing, as poor yet making many rich, as having nothing yet possessing all things.
Precious Holy Spirit prepare our minds for action and help us keep sober in spirit. Remind us to fix our hope completely on the grace to be brought to us at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Call our country out of darkness into Your marvelous light both to will and to work for Your good pleasure. Instruct us, teach us, and counsel us in the way we should go. Help us Proclaim the gospel with Your Mighty Word, in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction for such a time as this.
In Jesus’ name,
1Peter 1:13-16, 2:9
2 Corinthians 6:2-10
