And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all those that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them (KJ21).
O Lord, search our hearts. What prayer thieves have set up their tables in Your sanctuary of prayer in our hearts? Please forgive us for allowing profane, carnal, and casual attitudes to take away the sacredness of our prayer time with You. We repent for our prayerlessness, worldliness, and holding offense against one another.
