With natural disasters happening around the world for which we have no control, we need to pray for those involved.
The issues in Baltimore are within our grasp and also need our prayers. Is it police brutality? Is it race? Is it penury? Is it all that and more?
Baltimore’s deep frustration and concern over the present state of affairs is apparent. Both the peaceful and the violent are voicing similar complaints. There’s truth in what they see and experience.
God help us.
Lord, bring discernment and practical efforts to resolve the bitter root of these concerns.
Father, may your grace be evident in deliberations, street expressions, and judicial developments.
Help us to sort our how we might each be engaged towards the healing of our communities.
Thank you, Lord for hearing our prayers. We kneel in gratitude for your help.
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
