If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them,
how should we then live?
In these days we must live prayerfully. God’s people must pray as we have never prayed before. It may not be too late to forestall God’s judgment. But even if it is, we must pray. Prayer is one of the hallmarks of the life of Daniel after God brought judgment upon his nation.
We need God to make changes in our own desires and actions. We need His hand in forgiving those who wrong us. We must pray against our own hard-heartedness. It is a good exercise to pray through 2 Timothy 3:1-5 asking for deliverance from each of these trends in our culture.
