Time for Christians to Pray

Good evening friends and welcome to a new month. My hope and prayer is June will be a more gentle and loving month than May seemed to be. We are jumping from the fire of Covid-19 to the frying pan of chaos right now in this country, a frying pan that has no business being used as its main focus is to divide and destroy. So much chaos, so much anger, so much fear and so much destruction even through the smaller towns. We will be under curfew until this meanness goes away and who knows how long that will take. In Davenport last night there were two deaths and 4 injuries. One death was innocent 21 year old bystander buying groceries for a friend at Walmart, such a waste.

In my devotion this morning from My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald made a profound statement that is so relevant for today’s mindset in the USA.

“God’s Spirit continually reveals to His children what human nature is like apart from His grace.” Oswald Chambers  
Read that again and understand its meaning. Without God’s control, the devil runs amuck.

The chaos is so far out of control from the original reason of the anger and has swelled to an ideal by those whose purpose is to divide and destroy. It has turned into a chaotic dragon and in my opinion the church on its knees is the only hope of this dragon being lassoed so that God will come back in and control that dragon. And by church I don’t mean the Catholic church or the Baptist church or the Methodist church…I mean God’s church. Those who loved the Lord, His word and follow His teachings.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
It is a fearful time but our faith in God proves who is ultimately in control.

But we must do our part, we must remain strong. We are God’s church, His masterpiece of all things good.

We can help spread God’s light to those who live in the darkness and those who do not understand the power of the darkness as it engulfs them into evil ways.

So during this time of chaos, be strong in prayer and allow your light of Christ to shine brightly from you.

And even in the midst of chaos, be kind when you can.

  1. This violence has me u done. Your wards are a soothing balm, thank you. Today a horse trailer with horses inside was set afire in Ft. Worth. I cannot even…. although he was arrested, my heart literally prayed the cries of those animals will haunt him relentlessly until he surrenders to Jesus. Wrong, I know, but just like the loss of this 21 year old woman, completely unfathomable. Father, we need you desperately, and I pray that the words of my mouth and the meditations in my heart be pleasing to You Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Let me surrender to You that I may be an instrument of Your glory in such a time as this. Lord let us draw together as Your church and let us reflect Your love, the only thing that will save us. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
