Francis Frangipane: “I believe that a great harvest season awaits us. It is easy to see sin and predict doom. Yet, the very fact that God gives us the privilege of prayer tells us He desires we participate with Him in the transformation of our world.
Indeed, even when a nation seems fully in the grip of evil, the heart of God is searching for one who would ‘stand in the gap before [Him] for the land.’ God’s heart is to redeem, ‘not destroy’(Ezek. 22:30).” (Except from “The Last Great Harvest.”)
