Scripture: Romans 1:21a, Psalm 2
Romans 1:21a says, “…because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God,…” Perhaps the best example in the last 35 years of a nation knowing God but not honoring Him as God, would be the US Supreme Court removing prayer from American schools. There are seven distinctive steps toward the coming of judgment of God where a nation loses its sovereignty and the people are vomited out by the land (or lose their nation by conquest). As hard as this passage is, it is unfolding over many nations and the response of the church is critical. Psalm 2 is to be fulfilled and these nations are to be harvested. Judicial prayer in each of these situations is warranted and the object of that prayer should be the removal of the political perpetrators.
