As our country—and possibly, the world—edges closer to war, I must admit that I am finding it difficult to find the words to discuss everyday matters or reflect on the past. News-induced writer’s block, so to speak. Fear of the future seems everywhere now.
I think the only thing that I can do right now is pray.
Today I pray for the security of Israel. Lord, hear my prayer.
Today I pray for the persecuted Christians in the Middle East and elsewhere. Lord, hear my prayer.
Today I pray for those who daily suffer and die in Syria and elsewhere. Lord, hear my prayer.
Today I pray for the wisdom of our leaders as they decide on entering a possible worldwide confrontation. Lord, hear my prayer.
