Then the LORD said to me, “Do not pray for the well-being of this people.
H.m.m.m…do not pray for the well-being of this people. The die is cast. The judgment is pronounced and on its way. Sometimes we find it hard to pray for someone because we don’t know how to pray for them. This verse tells me God knows all about them and already has a plan in mind for them. Maybe, then, when we don’t know how to pray for a particular person, all we need to do is to mention their name in prayer, trusting God to do, and to answer, according to His plan.
