What the world needs is more prayer

This world is very big and there are many, many challenges the world is grappling with. But your prayers are more powerful and strong than you realize. If you’re like me and are guilty of not responding, even for just a moment, to the needs in our world today, then let these words leave your soul forever changed.

With gun and knife crime high, with as young as 8 carrying drugs across the country, things are out of control right now. Our country, and across the entire world, are experiencing wide-spread devastation like never before seen in history. Some places are too hot, others too cold. Floods, diseases, and brokenness seems to be affecting all. The world needs prayer at this time. 

We may not have all the answers about the world’s situation, but we can set our hearts and minds on what we do know. What we know is that God is faithful. What we know is that He is our Deliverer. What we know is that we can trust in Him. He is our hope, He is our peace, and He will carry us through. He promises that no matter what you we be facing, He will empower us to walk through it and overcome.

Today, when you don’t understand, when you don’t have answers, when you are in your darkest hour, God is your light of hope. God will bring restoration and order to your life again. Whether you’re in a storm, or experiencing another type of “trouble,” call on Him. He will deliver you, and in return, you will bring honour and to Him.

“…call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honour Me.” 

(Psalm 50:15, NIV)

Pray With Me
Yahweh, today I’m calling on You. Father, I trust that even in my personal darkness, and in the world’s darkest hours, You are my light of hope. God, give me Your peace that passes understanding. Bring order and restoration to my life. Heal this of crime, abuse and natural devastation as Your people call upon You, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
