Workers of Lawlessness to Robed in Righteousness

Posted by Vonni Gant on


It is told to us clearly in the Bible that Satan prowls around waiting to steal, kill and destroy. 1/6/2021 was a visible and tangible manifestation of the seeds of discontent he has been sowing for years, even centuries in our country. What we witnessed on that day was

  • Hate
  • Destruction
  • Hypocrisy
  • Lies
  • Chaos
  • White Supremacy
  • False Worship
  • Death

The Domain of the Kingdom of Darkness

We witnessed the taking of the Apple, the slaying of Abel, the pride of Pharaoh, the worship of the Golden Calf, the feeding on Ashes, and the crucifixion of Christ.

The Pride of Man

In Matthew 7:21-23, Jesus tells us “Not everyone who says to me ‘Lord, Lord’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

Father, Son and Holy Spirit, our prayer is that your kingdom come, your will be done, on Earth, as it is in Heaven. We pray that hate gives way to love, destruction to building up, hypocrisy to sincerity, lies to truth, chaos to shalom, white supremacy to love of neighbor, false worship to true worship and death to Life.

We pray for justice through the courts on those involved in the acts of 1/6/2021. We pray for comfort for the family of police officer Brian Sicknick who lost his life. We pray for integrity, humility, and honesty in our elected leaders, that they would act for the good of the people.

And we pray the hard prayer that our flesh often resists but the Spirit implores, for the workers of lawlessness to be transformed so that they are instead robed in righteousness, counted among the multitude from every tribe, tongue and nation, having been brought out of the kingdom of darkness and into the kingdom of light.
