Due to living in an ever-changing world - one that, at times, just makes no sense. From natural disasters to terrorist attacks, hate crimes and unmentionable acts of violence. we watch in-depth special reports from every news outlet around the world. We watch hoping to find some reason for the craziness, some type of explanation for why these things happen and who is responsible. While we will never get all the answers on this side of eternity, we know that as Christians, we are called to trust God, share His love and pray. (Philippians 4:6) “Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” With this passage in mind, let us pray…
As we face these adverse times in our nation and the world, we thank you, Lord, for dwelling among us. We are comforted by the knowledge that You alone are our Savior and Lord, and the ultimate Master of life. We trust our nation to Your loving care. Holy Spirit please touch the hearts of our nation’s leaders. Give them the wisdom to know what is right, and the courage to do it. Give us Your light and Your truth to guide us in our ways so that we may seek Your will and impact the world around us for Your Kingdom. In Jesus' Name we pray.
