a prayer with prophetic insight

Jeremiah 32:16-25 (JDV)

Jeremiah 32:16 “After I had given the purchase document to Baruch, son of Neriah, I prayed to Yahveh:
Jeremiah 32:17 Oh, Lord Yahveh! You yourself made the sky and land by your great power and with your outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for you!
Jeremiah 32:18 You show covenant faithfulness to thousands but lay the fathers’ violation on their sons’ laps after them, great and mighty God whose name is Yahveh of Armies,
Jeremiah 32:19 the one great in counsel and powerful in action. Your eyes are on all the ways of the children of men in order to reward each person according to his ways and as the result of his actions.
Jeremiah 32:20 You performed signs and wonders in the land of Egypt and still do today, both in Israel and among all humanity. You made a name for yourself, as is the case today.
Jeremiah 32:21 You brought your people Israel out of Egypt with signs and wonders, with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, and with great terror.
Jeremiah 32:22 You gave them this land you swore to give to their fathers, a land flowing with milk and honey.
Jeremiah 32:23 They entered and possessed it, but they did not obey you or live according to your instructions. They failed to perform all you commanded them to do, and so you have brought all this disaster on them.
Jeremiah 32:24 Notice! Siege ramps have come against the city to capture it, and the city, as a result of the sword, famine, and plague, has been handed over to the Chaldeans who are fighting against it. What you have spoken has happened. Notice, you can see it!
Jeremiah 32:25 Yet you, Lord Yahveh, have said to me, ‘Purchase the field and call in witnesses’ – even though the city has been handed over to the Chaldeans!”

a prayer with prophetic insight

Here’s an example of a prayer with prophetic insight. Jeremiah rehearses the great deeds of God in the past, and gives him credit even for the present calamity his people are facing, because he sees it as judgment for their rebellion. Then Jeremiah turns personal, and recounts what God has personally told him about the purchase of the land. He sees that as a sign that there will be a future after the calamity in the present.

Lord, there is nothing that has happened to us, or is happening, that we did not deserve as a people. We ask your forgiveness and choose to trust in you for restoration and blessing.
