Perspective & Prayer- Search Me O God

I love this beautiful Samoan hymn. Take a moment and listen to the timeless words and melody. This song is a wonderful reminder that the world is filled with those who love the Lord. They are all our brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.

I try to take a moment or two daily to write down what I call a “Hallelujah” prayer to the Lord. I don’t think the Lord would mind me sharing here what spilled out of me yesterday in the face of the escalating evil against Christians and others who don’t follow the plans of radical ideologies and governments.

“The times we are living in are deteriorating into a horror show…and no one seems to know how to turn away from the spectacle of what is unfolding and do something about it. But what is to be done?”

We all need to pray DAILY for what is happening to our brothers and sisters in Christ. I keep asking my husband, ‘Why aren’t those in leadership calling on all of us for prayer every day?’ If, like me, you feel a sense of futility in regards to the current condition of our world, reach out to the Lord Jesus in your need. Your need is a bridge that will bring you to Him. People everywhere, we all must PRAY about what is happening to these innocents.

You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
~ Psalm 139:1-3

    It truly seems to be turning into a horror show … and indeed nobody seems to know how to react or respond. As Marilyn said … it is a call to turn to fervent prayer that the Lord will speak to the oppressors … “Set my people free to worship me.” .. in His time and His Way.

    1. I had to blog about the state of the world, at least the bits I know. (This came about after seeing a horrible 60 minutes segment on Sarin gas) At times, the subjects I post about seem frivolous in the face of so much evil in this world. But…to not live our lives is giving into those evils. I usually try to dwell in the positives of life, but there also comes a time to shout out the truth! Thanks so much for the comment.
