Luke 12:2 (NLT) The time is coming when everything that is covered up will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all.
I often pray that God would reveal truth about a situation. I pray for churches and church leaders in particular that God would expose any hidden sin and reveal true motives. It often takes a great deal of time and energy to keep things hidden as well as eroding integrity and our relationship with God and others. This verse and prayers that follow from it can be real dynamite. I have found my prayers answered on many occasions with shocking results. Church leaders have been humbled and forced to resign as a result of the light of the Holy Spirit exposing short comings. This does not mean prayer replaces challenging wrong behaviour directly or asking appropriate questions but it means that even when leaders are hard-hearted or in seemingly powerful positions they cannot stand forever in face of a holy God. This verse should also keep each one of us humble, we can fool many people, we can even deceive ourselves but we will never fool God!
Father, expose my own sin and help me walk in the light
