Jeremiah 5:1 (Holman Christian Standard)
1 Roam through the streets of Jerusalem. Look and take note; search in her squares. If you find a single person, anyone who acts justly, who seeks to be faithful, then I will forgive her.

God makes a challenge to those in Jerusalem, find just one person who is just and faithful; and He will forgive the city of its wrongs. God had made a similar statement to Abraham about the city of Sodom. It shows how ready God is to provide grace and mercy. And God is ready to extend mercy to many for the sake of the few who stand with Him.

Intercessory Prayer is praying with sincere faith and hope God would step in on the behalf of a specific person, persons or other entity. It is not praying about your own needs, but having concern for the needs of others. When Jesus was dying on the cross He prayed, “Father forgive them for they do not know what they do.” Jesus showed us He was concerned for those mocking God even at a time when all of us would have turned our thoughts to our own predicament. Intercessory prayer is our reminder we alone are incapable of doing things in our own power. It draws our attention back to God as we seek Him and look fervently for His answers. When you intercede you bring yourself before God so that He might use your talents, your gifts, your abilities to minister to others. Martin Luther said, “Therefore faith prays in such a manner that it commits everything to the gracious will of God; it lets [God] determine whether it is conducive to his honor or to our benefit.” God said in Jeremiah 5:1 that he was looking for a single person to intercede for Jerusalem. By continually surrendering yourself to God, who knows, you could become the one person God is looking for. Pray for the needs of others who need God in their life. Pray God might touch our leaders and lead them in Godly directions. Pray for your family that they would be strong in the Lord.
