Editor’s Note: We found this prayer by Ravi Zacharias to be the most appropriate for these tragic events that have recently occurred. This prayer was posted on his blog on July 8, one day after the death of five Dallas police officers:
As we mourn this week’s tragic events in Louisiana, Minnesota, and now Dallas, it is evident that we need God now more than ever. My prayer on this day of shock and heartbreak:
“God, our heavenly Father, our minds go back to the day when Jesus knelt beside his beloved city and wept, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace–but now it is hidden from your eyes” (Luke 19:42)
ISIS claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in Orlando. 50 people were killed and 53 more were wounded. It was the largest mass shooting in our nation’s history. This evil must be stopped once and for all.
Families are grieving. People are hurting. Please pray for those hurting and grieving in Orlando. Pray that all will personally know Christ and His comfort.
We think of Psalm 34:18 which says, “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Click HERE to read more:
The calendar says its Spring and we should be looking forward to green grass, flowers blooming and warmer days; but when you’re in a season of discouragement, a beautiful Spring day can seem like just another day.
Discouragement is defined in the Noah Webster Dictionary as “depriving of courage, depressing confidence or hope.” How many of you have ever been in a season of discouragement? Did it last longer than a season? How many of you will admit that you are in that season right now?Continue reading →
As families in Lahore, Pakistan, celebrated Easter Sunday, March 28, in a public park, a suicide bomber entered into a public park and blew himself up. The blast killed more than 70 people, mostly women and children, and injured hundreds of others.
The next day, a Pakistanti Taliban group claimed responsibility for the bombing, saying that it deliberately intended to target Christians. However, Muslims were also caught in the blast. Pakistan’s army detained more than 200 people in connection with the bombing. Continue reading →
As we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we praise Him for the forgiveness of our sins and restoring our relationship back to God, the Father.
During this Easter season, we see Jesus Christ in His human form, coming to Earth to fulfill the work that God, the Father, has assigned Him. He healed the sick, taught the Word of God, and preached the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus also gathered disciples so that they can continue the work He started after He left the Earth and returned to heaven where He sits at the right hand of His Father.Continue reading →

The 2016 presidential race is unlike any political race we have seen in recent history. The candidates’ personal attacks on each other, insults hurled at different groups in society with no consideration of how these negative comments affect them, physical violence at political rallies, and strife encouraged between supporters of rival political candidates have news reporters, political analysts and voters saying, “We have never seen anything like this before.” There is even a division among some Christian leaders in this election season, according to news reports.
This post is not to discuss political views but to call on believers in Jesus Christ to appeal to God to have mercy and compassion on our country. As we humble ourselves and come before God with repentant hearts (2 Chronicles 7:14), we must ask Him for His strategies and tactics on how to pray against the demonic activity in the spiritual realm that could potentially bring total anarchy to our country.Continue reading →
