Resting in Prayer

Hearts full of compassion, and tears shed for those who are disaster victims has been the topic of discussion surrounding many of us this week.

So hard to fathom the destruction that is being witnessed, and that looms over a torn country.  I am reminded of Jesus’ words to Jerusalem. How He longed to shelter them under His wings, and he wept. 

God is love! (1 John 4:7-12) How can we believe that God the author of compassion would be less compassionate than us? This week I am leaving a link to a site that tells us how to pray for disaster victims at the bottom of this post.  When we pray we need to remember our God hears our prayers before we even speak them. (Isaiah 65:24) We should ask, and then rest that God will answer whatever we ask in Jesus name according to His will which is only good. (John 14:12-13)  The thief comes to steal and to kill and destroy, but Jesus came that we might have life abundant. (John 10:10) Before you pray settle it in your mind that Christ came that all might be saved, He gave His life because “God so loved the world…” (John 3:16) The reason we are still here is to witness to others that they would be saved from eternal death. Thank you for praying for those who so desperately need our prayers.  Praying for you too Beloved<3 Melinda
