Pleading with God

Men of God in the Bible pleaded with God.  Think Abraham, Moses, David, Jeremiah, Daniel.  Pleading seems “beneath” us, yet when we come to God’s throne, why shouldn’t we plead.  In fact, if we don’t, does it imply that we “deserve” something?

God is greater and holier than our feeble pictures of Him.

Read the stories of Nehemiah and Moses and see the 3 prerequisites of pleading: 1) Jealousy for God’s reputation; 2) Love for one’s fellows; 3) Indifference to one’s own life and destiny.
