Abraham's intercession to God over the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah was both daring and in humility.
He was daring in that he would approach God with such conviction by asking God to spare the cities for the righteous' sake, even if there be as few as ten. In this, he pleads in accord with God's Good and Holy nature, by saying "shall not the Judge of all the Earth do right?"
Yet, this petition was also very humble. Each time Abraham begged the Lord, he confessed his inadequacy to judge the situation with statements such as "I...which am but dust and ashes" and "Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak."
By the work of Christ, we may also come so boldly unto the throne of grace today, to find grace to help in time of need. Let's start by asking forgiveness and begging his mercies on our churches and this great land.
