A Prayer of Thanksgiving For God’s Zealous Goodness

Joel 2:18-24


Joel 2:18-24

Then the Lord was jealous for his land and took pity on his people. The Lord replied to them: “I am sending you grain, new wine and olive oil, enough to satisfy you fully; never again will I make you an object of scorn to the nations. “I will drive the northern horde far from you, pushing it into a parched and barren land; its eastern ranks will drown in the Dead Sea and its western ranks in the Mediterranean Sea. And its stench will go up;  its smell will rise.” Surely he has done great things! Do not be afraid, land of Judah; be glad and rejoice.Surely the Lord has done great things! Do not be afraid, you wild animals, for the pastures in the wilderness are becoming green. The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their riches. Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers,  both autumn and spring rains, as before. The threshing floors will be filled with grain; the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.


Lord, thank You that You’re jealous for us, and when we call on Your name, You’re eager to act. Thank You, Father, that You desire to flood us with a harvest of souls, the wine of Your presence and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. You long to satisfy us, Hallelujah!  You crave to put us in the place of influence. You are eager to drown whatever comes against us in the sea whether this is legions of demons or the circumstances of life.  Right now, we affirm Your goodness. Right now we encourage ourselves in the fact that You want to bless us (I Samuel 30:6). Right now, we resettle our faith on Your trustworthy character. When we call on You, You will do great things.  After we have called Your name, we should rejoice and be glad.  We should dance a real jig.  When we cry out to You, You will even heal creation. Our land will bear fruit and our lives will bear fruit. Fulfillment is our lot in You. Showers of Your presence will revive us. You will fill the stores house in our lives. Our congregations will thrive and will bustle with life.  Thank You for the blessings of calling on Your name.
