When he approached Jerusalem, Jesus saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes” (Luke 19:41-42 NASB).
In many churches and communities, the fear of what others think is a major influence in the decisions being made. Pray that in our city, Christians will have a healthy, biblical fear of God and will continually seek His heart regarding direction and decisions
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Proverbs 1:7)
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight. (Proverbs 9:10)
