God showed me some foolishness I believed about pain, loss, tragedy, and hurt. I’m no expert. I only know that I need God’s light and truth daily so that I don’t get caught up or bound in lies. After reading posts and hearing the sermons on hurt, today my perspective and my prayer is different. I do not seek an argument. I do not seek to throw stones. In this right-now-moment, I want Jesus. I want God. I want His Holy Spirit. I need them. Otherwise, I got nothin’.
Forgive us for aligning our thoughts, beliefs, and actions to lies that do not agree with Your Word or Your Character. God have mercy, and forgive us.
Lead us in Your kindness to repentance (Romans 2:1-4). You made final judgment when You sent Your Son, Jesus to die on the cross. Christ paid the penalty for sin once and for all (1 Peter 3:18; Hebrews 10; Romans 3:25, 9:28). The death and life of Christ made for us to be reconciled to you Father God. Remind us of that truth, and teach us how to better share it. Let our actions and words speak of the good things you have done, Lord. Let us lay our personal judgments at your feet. You alone are Judge, and You alone are good! Speak to the hearts of Your children across this land. Let not our hearts be hard. Soften them Lord that we might be aware of what You are doing in the earth and in our lives.
God let your Truth keep piercing the darkness and draw us deeper in to you that we might bear the truth of Your image as we walk the earth. Christe Eleison. Lord, have mercy on us.
Will you join in prayer? Raise up your people God that we might me one as You are One.
