Prayer for the nations

MARK 11 : 17 NKJV

 Then He taught, saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations’?[a] But you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’ ”[b]

How many believers desire that the evil in the world would be gone and that salvation would come and christianity would be the majority, not the minority? Does God want us to pray for all nations? Does God want us to pray for the salvation of those around us? Does God want the world to be how it is? Will God change the way things are if we pray?

2 CHRONICLES 7 : 14

 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.


The above scripture is a promise of God but it has conditions ...IF  
I find it very interesting that God promises to heal the land of those who pray for it ...IF
Have you ever thought that your prayer is ineffective? Maybe it is! Have you turned from your wicked ways? The scripture says that when you have fulfilled the IFS then God will listen to your prayer. Many say I do not think that my prayer is good enough for God, but it is not necessarily their prayer but their behavior.

2 TIMOTHY 2 : 19-21 NKJV

 Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ[a] depart from iniquity.”
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. 

Therefore IF anyone cleanses himself (or herself) from their wicked ways then they will become useful to God. Would you reward disobedient children?

As believers are we called to pray for those around us? The first scripture above shows us that it is God's desire that we will. If you do not pray for others much or you believe that God does not take much notice of your prayer what are you going to do about it?

Will you repent? Will you give yourself to God? Will you turn from your wicked ways? 

You can ask God to show you your wicked ways and I guarantee you that He will hear that prayer and that He will show you!
