Prayer in Uncertain Times

Psalm 61:1-2.  Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer.  Frome the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed.  Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.’

2 Samuel 30:6. ‘But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.’

The referendum is done and Britain is on her way out of the E.U.  The economic and financial hob-goblins that the pundits forecast would be unleashed upon us do not appear to have afflicted us as yet; on the contrary, the Stock Market is booming as I write this, and the Pound, having fallen steeply in the first few days, is steadily rising against other currencies.

Of course, on the other hand, Britain has hardly started on her journey as yet, and we are all in uncharted waters as we look forward to the negotiations to leave the E.U. in the friendliest and most beneficial way possible.  Indeed, who knows if the E.U. will survive in its present form?  The political repercussions have been most remarkable as both main political parties are embroiled in leadership elections, and those who were thought to be the main candidates have ruled themselves out.  Everything seems most uncertain.  The Lord Jesus spoke of ‘Distress of nations with perplexity’ and ‘men’s hearts failing them from fear…..’ (Luke 21:25-26).

Is not now the very time that God’s people should be deep in prayer to God, asking Him to use these uncertain times to draw men and women to Himself?  The next Concert of Prayer meetings are scheduled for next Saturday between 10-00am and 12 Noon.  Churches all over the UK will be praying for God to forgive this nation for its grievous sins and to bring us revival.  Why not see if such a meeting is scheduled for your town, and if not, why not call your Christian friends together and start such a meeting yourself?  At the same time, make sure that you are ready to point to Christ those of your non-Christian friends who speak to you of their fears concerning these difficult times.
