You know our struggles, you share our concerns, and our pain. When we cry, you cry. When we smile, you smile. When we mourn, you mourn, for that is how passionate and loving you are. You created humans in hope that we too would choose to have a relationship with you; with freewill intended. God, you have invited us into your home and have offered us love, compassion, liberty, freedom, and an abundant amount of grace. In a world of chaos, grief, loss, hate and sadness; in a world where the earth is crying out for your presence, in a world where your children are homeless, hungry, sick and in need you have sent us leaders and given your word of hope, unconditional love and peace. You don’t force us to serve you, for you have given us freewill.
My prayer tonight is that you strengthen your people for we are in the time of darkness and pain. My prayer tonight is that you restore us as your people and keep us close to the cross. My prayer tonight is that you continue to honor your word and reign justice and everlasting love over your people. My prayer tonight is that for every child and adult that is homeless, hungry, sick and in need that you provide for them and establish life long connections so that they may be able to live a life of purpose. My prayer tonight is that you hold your people close to your heart, wipe the tears frp, their faces of those plagued with grief, death and pain. My prayer tonight is that you send out your angels to cover the unrighteous, reign on the just and the unjust. My prayer tonight is that you speak to the heart of our leaders and those in authority. My prayer tonight is that you save the unsaved, open the eyes of those who are blind, open the ears to those who are deaf and show your light. My prayer tonight is that you raise up leaders from the average. My prayer tonight is that you provide shelter, grace, and education. My prayer tonight is that somepne reads this blog and seeks your presence. My prayer tonight is that you establish community among all people. My prayer tonight is the separation and segregation be dismantled. My prayer tonight is that you create communities and opportunity.
Money will not solve our problems. No. We need you to raise up leaders, speak to the hearts of your people, bring an end to war, share your light, and continue showering us with your loving grace. We need you to be our counselor, lawyer, doctor and teacher. You created this world and everything in it. You created us for a relationship with you and I believe that within all the bad, there is more good. Hear our prayers, and our cries. I love you, and I promise to be a light as long as you make a covenant with me, in order for change and justice for all.
In Jesus name, all hearts say
