Welcome to Day 5 of 21 Days of Prayer. This is a prayer devotional written by Lloyd Shadrach and Rob Sweet, teaching pastors at Fellowship Bible Church in Nashville, TN. My hope in recording each of these installments is that you’ll find comfort in them as I have.
The theme for this first week has been “God is in Control.” Today’s entry is entitled “When Sanity Returns.” Lloyd takes us to the story of a pagan king of Babylon for whom it took 7 years to finally be humbled.
Isn’t it refreshing to read through Lloyd’s devotional entries? Especially as you may be feeling inundated as I have, with all sorts of communications this week telling you how to be “more productive” during this downtime… I can’t help but wonder – what if God has a higher purpose for us in all this than mere productivity?
What if God desires for us to humble ourselves and cry out to Him instead? What does humbling ourselves look like? And how much more will it take for us to get there? Hopefully not 7 years like old King Ned.
Join me right here for Day 6,
Till next time,
