Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional October 1st – Don’t Wish For The “Good Old Days”

(Make Changes In Your Nation Through Prayer)

TO THE BIBLE: Ecclesiastes 7:10 GNB
“Never ask, “Oh, why were things so much better in the old days?” It’s not an intelligent question.”

Do you know most of the things we see today in the nations of the world are harvests of the decisions that were made in years gone by? The state of a nation today is, more often than not, a product of the choices, decisions, and actions of its past leaders.

For many, their national anniversary has become a time to reflect on the past and wish for “the good old days.” Many wonder how the state of their economies remains comatose after so many years of self-determination.

Well, it may be a fact that your nation has been dominated by governments that have been indifferent to the needs of its people, but you have to make a personal choice to move forward from that.

Rather than join the band of critics, naysayers, and rabble-rousers blaming and fighting their governments over the state of affairs in the country, I challenge you to be a solution provider, and pray for your nation.

You can effect definite changes in the realm of the spirit through prayer, to the advantage of your nation. That’s why Jesus said, “..men ought always to pray, and not to faint” (Luke 18:1 KJV).

That means pray always, and don’t give up, because when you pray, you make power available to establish works of righteousness in your nation.

Through prayer, we cause the will of God to be done in the earth as it is in heaven. It’s your responsibility to change your nation and your world at large through the power of prayer.

Blessed heavenly Father, I thank you for anointing my eyes to see great opportunities of service around me. Through me, my nation is positioned rightly for success and greatness as I pray for its leaders and state of affairs, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
