Call Unto Me

Text: Jeremiah 33:3

Intro: Prayer is the most powerful weapon or tool that God has given to His
children. With it we can move mountains.

When Jeremiah penned this God given promise he "was still confined in the
court of the guard" (33:1). He is in prison and Jerusalem has been
conquered and destroyed. The longed for restoration is beyond his grasp.
There is nothing that he or the disposed inhabitants of Israel could do to
restore the fortunes of Israel or the fortunes of Judah.

I’m sure most of you will remember the sniper incident that terrorized the
Washington area. Before they were apprehended the snipers killed 10 and
wounded 3. What you may not know is, prayer played a vital role in bringing
that ordeal to an end.

50 Christian truckers got together to pray that somehow the sniper


terrorizing the Washington area would be caught. Ron Lantz was scheduled
to retire in a few days and didn’t even live in the area, but he felt sure that
God would answer their prayers. In fact, he told the others attending the
prayer meeting that God was going to use him to catch the sniper.

A few days after they began to pray Ron was listening to the radio as he was
driving through the region and felt compelled to pull off the highway to a
rest stop. It was just a couple of miles from where the initial prayer meeting
had taken place. As he pulled in, he was shocked to see a car similar to what
was being described on the radio.

Carefully trying to read the license plate, a chill went up his back as the
numbers matched. He quickly called 911 and remained there for what he
said were the longest 15 minutes of his life, until the police arrived. He even
pulled his truck across the exit, there would now be no escape for these
elusive murderers. The rest is now history-the snipers were taken into
custody without incident and the horrifying ordeal was over.
