PRAYER Rx --- December 30
Dear heavenly Father, as we review the events of this past year, we need to ask Your forgiveness, for too often we who call ourselves Your people must have grieved You! ... We have often stood by silently. ... Meanwhile our streets, homes, and schools are unsafe. Although our children have been taught Your laws at church and at home, they are often victims of others who are uninformed and undisciplined. ... Help us to see that absolute freedom can only bring chaos to a society, for no nation can long survive with each person doing his or her own thing! ... Help us to see that as Christians we too are citizens, and thus we have a responsibility to speak out on important issues. ... Give us the courage we need, lest we fail You, ourselves, and our children, and become a party to our nation's downfall.
In Jesus' name we pray.
