We Must Pray Posted 7.08.2016

To be honest, with all of the events swirling around our nation these days, I don’t feel much like writing a Back Page.  The trivialities of life fade into the background.  So what I will do this week is this.  As your pastor, I ask you to take some time this afternoon to pray.  Pray for Dallas and Baton Rouge and Minnesota.  And, really, pray for our nation.

 

Please take even just a few moments pray for the escalating tensions of our culture and that all people everywhere would ask God for the wisdom to respond righteously and react neither in unrighteousness nor in inaction to the deep injustices in our world.

 

James 1:19-21 states “This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.”

 

Human life is precious to God, and the answer to all conflict and violence is in a reconciling relationship with one another that is rooted in a reconciled relationship with God that He has made possible through His Son Jesus Christ who died for us “so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed” (1 Peter 3:24). 

 

So this week I replace my pontificating with prayer.  Will you join me?
