// Read Exodus 32:11-14 //
11 But Moses sought the favor of the Lord his God. “Lord,” he said, “why should your anger burn against your people, whom you brought out of Egypt with great power and a mighty hand? 12 Why should the Egyptians say, ‘It was with evil intent that he brought them out, to kill them in the mountains and to wipe them off the face of the earth’? Turn from your fierce anger; relent and do not bring disaster on your people.13 Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Israel, to whom you swore by your own self: ‘I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and I will give your descendants all this land I promised them, and it will be their inheritance forever.’” 14 Then the Lordrelented and did not bring on his people the disaster he had threatened.
Moses’ prayer for the children of Israel prevented God from wiping them out. He was not there when they used the gold meant for the temple of God to build a calf to worship. But as a caring and faithful leader he pleaded for them in the presence of God. This is a challenge to everybody this morning. We should be our brother’s keeper by praying for them.
Prayer: Pray for every member of your church today that the will of God will be done in their lives.
