“A Prayer For Hearing The Bells”

December 19, 2019

Father, our hearts are heavy when we awaken each day with new reports of widespread evil, whether it’s in our region of the world or in a distant land. It could drive us to despair when we consider the continuous chipping away of Biblical morals and godly restraint sweeping across the globe. Additionally so many deal with these troubling situations through a politically correct lens instead of the black and white truth. The only lasting answer to our soul’s diseases and widespread evil is provided for us in the arrival of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Though the majority reject Your answer for our sin problem, how grateful we are that Jesus still came, for He lives within the hearts of those who see their need and receive His forgiveness. In the midst of the prevailing darkness, like Longfellow, we declare that You are not dead and You do not sleep. The seasons of darkness we experience is a temporary state, but in You is everlasting light. The hopes and fears of all the years are met in Thee, O God of light! Amen.
