My heart has been heavy for a long time about the state of our nation. I rest in the fact that God is still God and for all those who will have it, the Peace of Christ is real and available. With all that is going on in our capitol today, I simply ask you to pray for peace in the name of Jesus. I don’t care what your political position is, I simply ask you to join in a prayer for peace. I am hoping that the bitterness and hatefulness of these days will shock our leaders, the media, and we the people into finding ways to walk together. I don’t have all the answers, but I know a Savior who loves every last one of us all across this nation and the world. I cry out to Jesus on behalf of our country. Lord help us! Lord Jesus, make your people, your church, a bright light in this dark and difficult time. Church, pray with all your hearts, and then speak and act as Jesus would have you. Speak the truth in love.
