“Finally, Abraham said, “Lord, please don’t be angry with me if I speak one more time. Suppose only ten are found there?” And the Lord replied, “Then I will not destroy it for the sake of the ten.” Genesis 18:32 NLT
Suppose . . . Once Abraham learned of the planned destruction of Sodom, He prayed. Abraham interceded for Sodom, knowing Lot and his resided in the city. Abraham pleaded with God to stop the destruction of Sodom. Lot may have been in the city but Abraham prayed for the entire city to be spared, not just Lot. He cried consistently for souls from fifty to ten. He never stopped to pass judgement, his only concern was for souls. Intercessors, it is not our place to judge, attempt to understand or question the plans of God. It’s our assignment to pray, stand in the gap and cry out for souls. We stand between the living and the dead and cry for their souls. Suppose our prayers could make a difference in the life or death of a soul. Abraham stayed before God with a consistent plea. He never gave up or got weary at his assignment. Let’s be not weary, in due season we shall reap a harvest . . . if we faint not. It is time we have a hunger for souls to be saved, set free and delivered.
