"You are Covered in Prayer!" (Ezekiel 16:8)

Recently I led a study in our local church. In my preparations, I asked the church family for prayerful support of the study. One email sounded a note of encouragement, “You are covered in prayer!”

God comforts His children in so many ways. Prayer is one means of comfort. Even on that day, I was in email communication with a missionary physician in Cameroon, Africa. I also asked him for prayers and he obliged. I was literally covered in prayers from all over the world!

When I passed by you again and saw you, behold, you were at the age for love, and I spread the corner of my garment over you and covered your nakedness; I made my vow to you and entered into a covenant with you, declares the Lord God, and you became mine.
Ezekiel 16:8 (ESV)

We have nothing good to offer God. All of our works, accomplishments, deeds-these are all filthy rags unless we surrender our lives to Him. He covers us with His grace and mercy so that we can stand before Him, sanctified by believing in His Son, Jesus Christ. Even at this very moment, Lord Jesus Christ is in Heaven praying for all believers, covering all in prayer.

Covered in prayer!

Never let me remove God’s cover from my life!

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
