Day 2 – Hunger and Cleansing
And falling to the ground he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” And he said, “Who are you, Lord?” – Acts 9:4-5
In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”
And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!” Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for. – Isaiah 6:1-7
Pray that God would give the ISIS members a hunger to really know who God is and that they too would say “Who are you Lord?” Pray that they would be willing to give up all previous ideas to really know God in an intimate way. Pray that they would respond like Isaiah, who in the presence of the Lord and in the realization of his greatness and holiness, saw his own dirtiness and cried out for mercy. Pray that they would see their uncleanliness and would cry out for mercy. Pray that they too would find the cleansing power of God through Christ.
