2 Kings 25:1-30; Ezekiel 1:1-28; 2 Timothy 2:1-26

Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your
inheritance. Psalm 2:8, NKJV

It is said that “Life’s golden altar is the altar of intercession”.
Although Abraham had just received the promise of a son, he put
his own joys and concerns to one side and interceded on behalf of
the wicked inhabitants of Sodom. Ours is a day when the face of
evil is showing itself ever darker, when wickedness and lies are
gathering momentum and, in the ensuing mudslide, are carrying
away institutions and families and much that is precious in their
path. Let us join Abraham, not in hiding from the darkness around
us, but in interceding for those who have never known the streams
of light pouring down from the Father of lights. —M. MacMullen

Make me a witness like You, dear Lord, showing the love of the cross; Sharing Your Word till all have heard, serving whatever the cost.—R. Hamilton
