Prayers for #Arlington

On Wednesday morning (May 26th, 2021), four people were shot in Arlington, Texas. Three died; one was injured and taken to the hospital. I want to take time here to ask all of us to join in prayer over those grieving tonight.

Please pray with me:

“Dear Lord Jesus,
Our hearts break at what has happened, Father God. You knew each person hurt and killed personally and perfectly; we know that this breaks Your Heart, as well.

We pray, Lord Jesus, that You would comfort and strengthen those who are grieving the three people who have lost their lives. Please work with the doctors and nurses to help the saved individual. May this event cause those who are broken to seek You out, and find healing in You alone.
In Your Name we pray,

Do you know Jesus?

Jesus is in control, even when things are out of control. Learn more about Him, and what He did, here.

To Burst Open Again

Cold-hearted child
Music gone wild,
afraid of the unknown

She cries and cries
lifts up her eyes
for children who do not show

Like a dried-up river,
she used to burst open,
but now she has withered away.

Jesus, it is my prayer
that the water wells up once again
I need You, not you

Return me to my love at first
Let me experience a second, a third burst
For You, my King, my everything
Let my love for them
burst open again
