Let Us Pray. Let Us Love.

I am reading an article, and my heart bows low. Numbers of dead bodies and statistics fill its sentences. According to this article, Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) has said that Fulani Herdsmen and Boko Haram have killed 280 people in February and March terrorist attacks, including 130 deaths in Kaduna, 120 in Zamfara and 30 in Benue states—all within the middle belt of the country.

Praying for Farmers in this Blizzard

In my neck of the woods, there is quite a blizzard blowing outside. I saw this facebook post about praying for farmers and their livestock, and wanted to share it here.

Please pray with me for the farmers as this blizzard makes it’s way through! It’s calving season, according to farmers, and they have to protect these animals. ”  “A righteous man regards the life of his animal…” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭12:10‬a.

“Dear Lord Jesus,
We pray that as this blizzard blows through, that You would give these farmers wisdom, understanding, and favor as they take care of their animals. Please protect these animals from the cold, and bless them!
In Jesus’ Name,
Amen.”

Thank you!

Prayer & Appreciation for Women in the US Armed Forces!

These women spend much of the prime of their lives fighting for the USA, but seem to be much less appreciated than their male counterparts. (I’m not trying to create an argument, it’s just what I see!)

If you know any women in the US Armed Forces, please make sure she knows she is so appreciated!

Let’s pray for these brave women in the US!

Love, in Christ,

Prayers for Alabama

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
(Romans 12:15, NIV)

It is with much sadness that I report about the many tornadoes that twisted through Beauregard, Alabama. At least 90 people have been injured and 23, including four beautiful children, have died.

Things like this are a complete tragedy. Would you pray and mourn with me for these people who are deep in mourning?

“Dear Lord Jesus,
We come to You, filled with sadness over all of the loss had in Beauregard. We pray over each parent who is missing their daughters and sons tonight, and over every family member and friend who is mourning the loss of their loved ones. Thank You for the aid that has been sent to Alabama; we pray that You would lead and guide Your worldwide Church on how we can love, support, and mourn with our brothers and sisters and those who don’t know You.

In Jesus’ Name we pray,
Amen.”

This post is dedicated to the four children who have passed in these tornadoes: Mykala Walden, AJ Hernandez, Taylor Thorton, and Jonathan Bowen. May they rest in Peace.

Verses to Meditate on: Psalm 1

“Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.”
(Psalm 1:1-3, NIV)

Commentary from The Life Application Study Bible, NIV Version:

“The phrase, “Whatever they do prospers,” does not mean immunity from failure or difficulties. Nor does it guarantee health, wealth, and happiness. What the Bible means by prosperity is this: when we apply God’s Wisdom, the fruit (results or byproducts) we bear will be good and will receive God’s approval. Just as a tree soaks up water and bears luscious fruit, we also are to soak up God’s Word, producing actions and attitudes that honor God. To achieve anything worthwhile, we must have God’s Word in our hearts.”

How can you apply God’s wisdom today?
