Prayers for Michigan

Today, 3 children died in another attack on a school. What can a person say to this? Are there even words to communicate this tragedy?

While there may be no words, there are words we can pray to Christ. In the midst of the confusion and heartbreak, we can pray to a God who is never shaken, but it so close.

Please, pray with me for those who are injured, and for the families who are left behind and are now grieving their children.

“Dear Lord God,
Thank You for being Sovereign. Nothing surprises You, but it does break Your Heart. We pray over each and every student and adult affected by that shooting, and pray that they would come to know You, and recieve the healing that they need. We thank You for this, Father. In Jesus’ Name we pray, amen.”

In this, I am reminded of this song— hopefully it expresses both the pain and hope of life with Jesus, who died to save us all. Learn more about Him, here.

What’s Going on in Nigeria?

Hello friends,

It has been awhile since I’ve talked directly about Nigeria or the Chibok girls. Because of this, I wanted to take some time here to share about three things going on in Nigeria as we speak. Hopefully, by knowing these things, we can become more informed people of prayer.

Here they are:

  1. The “Boko Haram Kingpin” Nkunzi, a well-known Boko Haram leader, was shot dead in a gunfight on Tuesday. His body was found in Pretoria; his girlfriend was also found with bullet wounds, and was taken to the hospital. As depressing as this is, it is a direct answer to the prayer that God would humble those in Boko Haram and bring justice to those hurt by Boko Haram.
  2. Connected to the above event, there has been much gang warfare between the “original” or mainstream Boko Haram, and a breakaway group called Bafarasai. This warfare has claimed at least eight lives, with many of those lives being innocent. Please pray for these innocent people who are in great danger each time a bout of gang violence is had. This can also be seen as Boko Haram and other gangs demand money from the innocent for protection.
  3. There is a person that many people in Northern Nigeria are calling “John Wick,” and they are pointing to him for getting rid of Boko Haram gang members. While this is all speculation, it is very interesting that there might be a person hell-bent on killing off Boko Haram members. As said before, there seems to be a theme of vindication and justice happening as Boko Haram members are being humbled by the violence enacted towards them. Pray that if this person really exists, that they would know Christ and would be led of Him.

Crazy things are happening in Nigeria! I’ve enjoyed reading up on these stories. I may make it a weekly or bi-weekly thing, but we will see about that. Thank you all for reading, and for your prayers!

With Love in Christ,

Don’t Forget His Girls

“My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, ‘Here’s a good seat for you,’ but say to the poor man, ‘You stand there’ or ‘Sit on the floor by my feet,‘ have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?”

(James 2:1-4, NIV)

I wonder how those in Southern Nigeria– which is decidedly more “1st world” than the Northern region of Nigeria– think about those going through such pain and turmoil at the hands of terrorists. The plights of those in Northern Nigeria are many; yet, we barely hear of them in the news and on TV.

When We are Overwhelmed

Shootings. The murder of Gabby Petito. Natural diasters. Global terrorism.

I have been overwhelmed with how much pain is in this world, and have felt so ovewhelmed that I didn’t know what to write about… but I thought it would be best to just be honest.

I’m tired of writing about tragedies, yet that is what this blog has been based upon. I would be remiss if I didn’t speak about these things.

As I sit here typing, a Bible verse comes to mind:

“When I am afraid, I will trust in You.”

(Psalm 56:3)

When I am overwhelmed, I can come to my Savior, and recieve the rest and rejuvination I so desperately need. And that is what I encourage all of you to do today, as well. Amidst all the bad news, we have a God who has Good News for us: He sent His Son to die for our sins, so that those who believe could live with Him for eternity.

We have a refuge in this battle called life. And when we feel overwhelmed, we can run to Him.

Have a beautiful day.

In Christ,

Video – Afghanistan: What is Happening to Christians?

Friends and Followers,

I came across this video and I thought I’d be remiss not to put it on here. Whwile many are going through persecution, there are MANY Afghani people who are coming to Jesus. Prayer requests start at 18:20-ish.

Thank you for watching!

In Christ,

9/11, TWENTY YEARS LATER

My heart breaks over those who lost someone that fateful day, twenty years ago.

Now, as we face the Taliban in Afghanistan, natural disasters everywhere, and other horrific things, it can be easy to forget what happened to America on September 11th, 2001. But today, let’s take some time to reflect, to grieve, and to remember.

With Love, in Christ,

Ending Child Sacrifice: An Interview

I watched this young woman’s video about how she is an activist, fighting for the end of child sacrifices.

I cannot imagine a world where this happens, but sadly, it’s alive and well in Uganda. Please pray with me for these children, that they would be kept safe, and that child sacrifice would end. Most of all, please pray with me for the salvation of all of these witchdoctors and other such people!

Unity in the Church When it Hurts

There have been incredibly tragic things going on around the world… and my question is, what has the world-wide church been doing about it?

This is not to shame the churches where these disastrous things have happened; it is to remind ourselves that as Christians, we belong to one another. We are one.

I came to this conclusion after reading 1 Corithians 16:19:

“The churches in the province of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Priscilla greet you warmly in the Lord, and so does the church that meets at their house.”

The churches in the province of Asia had never even met the Corinthians, much less been in a place to send greetings. Again, Priscilla and Aquila greeted these people warmly. Churches thousands of miles away from eachother greeted one another with love and warmth!

Can we, as apart of this worldwide Christian Church, do the same, helping our brothers and sisters in need?

I commend those in the Church who have stepped out of their comfort zones and went out to help the many hurting people all over the world right now.

And even if we cannot physically go help these people, we can pray– in fact, it should be the first thing we are doing!

Will you pray with me, here?

“Dear Father God, we come to You on behalf of our brothers and sisters who are hurting all over the world. We pray for Your Comfort, Strength, Wisdom, Guidance, and Protection over them. Please show us how we can practically help. In Jesus’ Name we pray, amen.”

To help Nigerians, you can check out my list of reputable donors here. The Red Cross and Convoy of Hope are also providing practical help for those in pain and tragedy right now. I recommend them (none of my recommendations come from donations or are paid advertisments).
