I have been rather distraught by what I've seen in the news lately. It's been heartbreaking and sobering, to say the least. Additionally, watching the country respond to one other has been heartbreaking for me. The division among us, including Christians, is sad.
Every day we live is one day closer to the return of Christ and I think we are seeing some evidence of that played out even right now. Now of course we don't know the day when that will happen, which is all the more reason we need to be alert, watching and praying.
Our country needs prayer and we need to be raising children who are ready for battle because things are likely going to continue to get harder for Christians.
We need to get on our knees folks. We need to be praying for strength and courage for the coming days, pray for the lost, pray for our government and the upcoming election. There is no shortage of things we need to be seriously praying for.
