Somebody to stand in “the gap”

I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.

The text is from Ezekiel 22:30 which was the inspiration for the Ecumenical Thanksgiving Worship Service on 25 January 2016 to commemorate 30 years of Benguet State University.

The gap according to presider Dr. Armando M. Canoy, President of the Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary, are

places of weakness and vulnerability that exists in communities, schools, homes and even the nation. (Therefore) Standing in the gap means interceding and praying for others who have weaknesses.

Relating this to the University’s ongoing search for President, he pointed out that

BSU needs a leader willing to stand in the gap, who will pray for others and who will sympathize with everyone who has a weakness.

Somebody to stand in the gap. This is also who the nation seeks for.
