Let us pray together for brothers and sisters in Beirut Lebanon.
My friends, i’d like to ask that you remember the people of Lebanon in your prayers this evening and in the coming weeks. So many people have lost family members in the event; mothers, fathers, children, husbands and wives, and not to mention countless friends. Can you imagine waking up everyday, as so many of the people of Lebanon do, only to relive the previous day of a newly realized existence without those you have always held dear? Let us pray for them, and be empathetic. Don’t allow yourself to be callused as many are and as so many would have you be. I’ve seen a sick thing coming out of the desolate land known as the modern state of Israel, there seems to be rejoicing towards the pain and suffering of the Lebanese, many of which are fellow believers in Christ. So many people of the so-called “Holy land” are considering the happenings of last week a gift from God. Can you imagine? This fact alone should spur you to begin in prayer immediately. Don’t let us be counted among the synagogue of satan, let us be counted with the saints through the ages. Let us be counted with Christ. Let us shine forth as candles in prayer as our namesake would have us to do. Let us be not hidden. Let us be salt to this unsavory moment in time, which likely will be just another ingredient in a year of misery.
Pray, with me, Christian. Let God guide your heart as you convene with him about these things. Pray with me.
