Here is my SOAP devotional for yesterday (I feel a post about procrastination coming on soon ).
Genesis 17:1 -28:19
Scripture: “Then Abraham approached Him (God) and said: ‘Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked?’”. ~ Genesis 18:23
Observation: God listens to our prayers. Abraham approached God about his plan to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah and repeatedly requested that God spare the city if there were even a few righteous people. God did spare the righteous there (I am amazed God saw Lot as righteous – it gives me hope). I do wonder if Abraham hadn’t prayed would Lot have been spared?
Application: My prayers do make a difference and obviously from God’s interaction with Abraham, He wants me to make requests.
Prayer: God please hear my prayers and give me the wisdom and ability to know when to pray and what to pray for. Give me the faith to pray.
