Introduction to Hosea

Coming up next, we will spend 11 days praying through the book of Hosea.  This book was written by the prophet, Hosea, to the nation of Israel. God commanded Hosea to marry Gomer, a prostitute who was continually unfaithful to him in their marriage. God used their story to symbolize the same unfaithfulness that Israel displayed toward God when they chose to reject Him and follow other gods.  God also used their story to reveal the depths of His steadfast, unending love and great forgiveness toward Israel (and to us as well) despite continuous rebellion and unfaithfulness.

How many times have we also been disobedient to the Lord and turned away from Him only to have Him remain faithful in His love toward us? Our prayer time in Hosea will be such a rich journey.

-Is there anyone in your life you are praying will return to God? 
-Do you struggle in remaining faithful to the Lord? 
-Are you in need of a time of repentance and seeking the Lord?  

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then join us in praying. Hosea will remind us how much God loves us, how passionately He pursues us, and how He is faithful, even when we are not.  Join us on a journey through Hosea, and invite someone to pray with you!
