Woe to him who says to a wooden thing, Awake; to a silent stone, Arise! Can this teach? Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in it. But the Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before him.”(Habakkuk 2:20 ESV)
Горе тому, кто говорит дереву: ‘встань!’ и бессловесному камню: ‘пробудись!’ Научит ли он чему-нибудь? Вот, он обложен золотом и серебром, но дыхания в нем нет. А Господь–во святом храме Своем: да молчит вся земля пред лицем Его! (Аввакум 2:19-20 Russian)
O LORD God, most hallowed Father in heaven ~ we humbly and expectantly bow before your mighty presence on this new day. Silence the mouths of those who ignorantly speak to inanimate manmade objects of gold, silver, wood, stone or metal hoping to receive some answer from these deaf and dumb objects. Awaken the voices of everyone who has knowledge and faith in your inspired Scriptures. Thank you for this written word, that teaches us how to live each day while confined to this earth. Give us more preachers and teachers whose hearts are burning to proliferate every city, county, territory and state of the United States with your Spirit filled word that carries the message of salvation to all people. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
