Today’s Prayer

Father, today we ask that You open our eyes as responsible citizens, and especially as Christians, to see the situations that we face in our world today. Let us each seriously reflect on Charles Colson’s words: ” … the crisis that threatens us, the force that could topple our monuments and destroy our very foundations, is within ourselves. The crisis is the character of our culture, where the values that restrain inner vices and develop inner virtues are eroding. Unprincipled men and women, disdainful of their moral heritage and skeptical of Truth itself, are destroying our civilization by weakening the very pillars upon which it rests.” * … Remind us that we all have had a part in this, whether by being uninformed, or too busy, or deceived, we have allowed our nations to erode morally. Make us aware that You are calling us to choose leaders who will help us recover our moral compass. In the matchless name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

A Time for Everything

Ecclesiastes 3

There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to rebuild. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to lose. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace. What do people really get for all their hard work? I have thought about this in connection with the various kinds of work God has given people to do. God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. So I concluded that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to enjoy themselves as long as they can. And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God. And I know that whatever God does is final. Nothing can be added to it or taken from it. God’s purpose in this is that people should fear him. Whatever exists today and whatever will exist in the future has already existed in the past. For God calls each event back in its turn.

Quote of the Day

If there are two people praying, there are three. If three meet to pray, there are four praying. There is always one more than you can see. ~S. D. Gordon~
