As we continue our sermon series in Exodus with this week’s sermon, “Encountering I AM,” here’s how you can be praying:
Ex 3:1- 4:31, focusing on verses 3:2-6 & 4:31
Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian; he led his flock beyond the wilderness, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.There the angel of theLordappeared to him in a flame of fire out of a bush; he looked, and the bush was blazing, yet it was not consumed. Then Moses said, “I must turn aside and look at this great sight, and see why the bush is not burned up.” When theLordsaw that he had turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then he said, “Come no closer! Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” He said further, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God…
The people believed; and when they heard that theLordhad given heed to the Israelites and that he had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped.
· God is calling you. He wants to speak you. Come hear a word from Him. Remove your sandals as you enter His holy presence and in reverence, listen to His message to you. May you be wonderfully different because you have spent time with Him.
· Ask the Lord who it is that He is calling you to visit and relay His assurance that He sees their pain, knows their circumstances, hears their prayers and is moving mountains for their best.
· Ask God to write the names of His people, with whom you are to speak, on your heart. Lift their names up to the Lord right now. Ask God to prepare their hearts to hear His word to them through you.
· Pray that because you have spent time with the God, people will experience knowing that God cares, God comes, God comforts and responds to their prayers. Pray that they will believe His message of assurance and bow down and worship Him.
· Pray for our Jewish brothers and sisters who are using our campus this month for their High Holy Days.
“We never know how God will answer our prayers, but we can expect that He will get us involved in His plan for the answer. If we are true intercessors, we must be ready to take part in God’s work on behalf of the people for whom we pray.”― Corrie ten Boom
