Pray and turn away God’s wrath!
“The prayer of Moses of old is a true type of the intercessory prayer of Jesus.”
When the children of Israel sinned against God in making a golden calf and claiming it to be the god which brought them out of Egypt, the anger of the Lord was kindled against them and God wanted to destroy them. But when Moses came down from the mount and saw the great sin which had grieved God, he took the whole blame upon himself and said, “…forgive their sin – and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of Thy book which Thou hast written” (Exo 32:32). This is true of intercession. It is truly divine to take the whole blame upon oneself and justify others. Concerning this character of Moses we read in Psalm 106:23 that Moses stood before God in the breach to turn away His wrath, that He might not destroy them.
Of all the intercessory prayers, the greatest was the one offered by Jesus on the cross when He prayed for those who tormented and persecuted Him: “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do” (Lk 23:34). Thank God, we have a forgiving God in this unforgiving world.
Dear Reader, God needs mighty intercessors filled with the holy zeal of God, who will travail in prayer for a true revival.
On thy towers, O Zion!, They wrestled through in prayer;
In selfless service poured their lives, Thy glory e’er to share.”
