Introduction to Micah

Coming up next, we will spend two days in the Old Testament book of Micah. This book was written by the prophet Micah to pronounce judgment on Israel, but also includes hope for the future for restoration of Israel and Jerusalem as well as prophecies regarding the coming of Jesus, the Messiah.

Our prayer time in Micah will focus on who our God is:

-He is Lord over all the earth.
-He pardons our sins, tramples them underfoot, and hurls our iniquities into the sea.
-He is full of compassion.
-He keeps His Word.

There is no god like our God! As we learn more about God’s character, we are compelled to walk in His ways and do what He says.

Micah 6:8 says, “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with the Lord your God.”

Micah 4:5 says, “All the nations may walk in the name of their gods; we will walk in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever.”

As you spend two days praying in the book of Micah, let these two verses soak into your heart and challenge you to examine your life and your “walk.” Join us on a journey through Micah, and invite someone to join you!
