“Turn thou us unto Thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; Renew our days as of old.” Lamentations‬ ‭5:21‬ ‭KJV‬‬. This is the heart felt prayer of the prophet Jeremiah as he reflected on the sad condition of his people. He was begging God for the spiritual revival and renewal that they so desperately needed. He knew that because of their sinful and backslidden condition their only hope was for God Himself to do a mighty and miraculous work. Today as we see what is happening in our world, this should be our prayer as well. We should be crying out to God, “Turn our hearts to Thee O Lord! Turn us, bend us, break us, do whatever is needed to humble this proud hearted religious generation so we will see our need and return to Thee.” This is the only hope for our generation. We must realize this turning is a Divine work of God done in response to the humble and desperate cries of His children. We are the ones who can prepare the way for God’s power and glory to be manifested. May our hearts be turned away from worldly things that matter so little, to the spiritual needs that will matter for all eternity. “Turn us to Thee O Lord.”
