Prayers For Our World #prayforparis

Pray For Paris

The news around the world today is shocking as we learn more of the details of the shooting in a concert hall and soccer match.  Our world is unsettled, leadership has resolve to deal swiftly with this tragedy but people are still afraid.  

As the images play out across the National news, the stories of yesterday (ex. Starbucks red cup, political polls, etc.) don't seem as important, until the executors of this type of violence are found.  

HOW DO YOU FIND PEACE IN A TIME LIKE THIS?

God is the answer.  There is no other peace we can find outside of Him, nothing else will work.  I was reading a story of a father that was informed his daughter died.  He was with the "Teacher".  He was walking with the very One with the power to save his daughter, yet the report that came to this dad was, "she was dead".  Would he believe the report that just came to him about his daughter's medical update OR would he believe in the healing power of Jesus.

Jesus quickly said, "Do not be afraid, just trust me, she will be alright." ~Luke 9:50

Those same words encourage me today and I hope they encourage you as well - Do NOT be afraid, just believe in God! Those secure about their eternal life in heaven knows, to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.  (Posted by Roslyn)
