Matthew 22… Jesus said….
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38This is the great and first commandment. 39And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (ESV)
I am reminding you of your need, of your obligation as a Christian, to pray as we experience the next few days. On every occasion that you think about the political and cultural tension that we are presently experiencing…pray.
My personal prayer is that God’s ‘will’…will be manifest in my life and the life of my family. That He will give us wisdom to know what to say and do and how to demonstrate His love…how to show and speak peace and love to the people in our circles. I pray that this current climate of tension will provide increased opportunity to share the Gospel. I pray that God will show mercy and hold-back those that are evil and seek to harm others and create division. I pray for the weak and helpless and poor who are more-so affected by the acts of those who seek to create confusion, chaos, and disruption. I pray that the Kingdom of God will come.
I will simply repeat this message and prayer for most of this week. When you see it or read it…pray. God is our constant source of help. He is our supply. On Him, we depend.
