On Labor Day

 On this Labor Day weekend, why not take a few minutes to pray for our nation?   We've been busy today and I didn't get this posted when I hoped to, but the day isn't over yet -- and prayer for our nation is always timely.  I read this at Dayspring this morning from a writer named Gini:

"We live in an ever-changing world - one that, at times,  just makes no sense. From natural disasters to terrorist attacks, hate crimes and unmentionable acts of violence, we get the in-depth report from every news outlet in the United States. And, we watch these special reports, trying to find some kind of reason for the craziness, some perfect explanation for why these things happen and who is responsible and how can we make a difference. And, while we will never get all the answers on this side of eternity, we know that as Christians, we are called to trust God, share His love and pray."

I so appreciate Gini's words.  This is just what I have been thinking about as I see the media trying to find some cause, any cause for Hurricane Harvey.  We are not going to get all the answers.  We cannot conveniently blame this on our president.  We realize that God has allowed this for some purposes of His own.   His thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways.  Truly, we are called to trust God, share His love, and pray.

 A prayer for our nation
Hope it is a blessing and encouragement to someone else today.


  1. I prayed that prayer. I hope others do it as well.

  2. I hope so too, Sandy. We need prayer so desperately.
