More and more today I am feeling a dismal heaviness, a dark shadow hovering over me and over this campus… over the people of God and over those who are needing Him more than ever.
Pray for us, pray for me, pray for each other. Cover the broken the weak and the meek in faith; for we are light in the world and we must not grow weak, we must remain strong- bright and burning: providing warmth to those stricken by the cold hatred in this world and stirring up flames to singe sinful desires.
Brothers and Sisters,
“Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. For he that will love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: let him eschew evil and do good; let him seek peace and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.”
1 Peter 3:8-12
My God, we need you. Hear my prayer… come to the aid of your people even when they ask not for your presence or see that they need it. Forgive us, forgive me, for our ignorant indifference. Give us open eyes to see pain and counter it. Give us more of your living water so that we may pour it onto the tongues of the thirsty, the dry in spirit. Breathe into us the truth of your Word so that all that we say breathes into the world your Spirit of strength and power.
Fight for us, fight with us. Rally the souls of your Kingdom with the battle cry of the eternally victorious Trinity.
