Our nation…pray for it

Our nation…Pray for it

 

We are in terrible state in the world today, the world is divided. People are deleting friends over politics, people are hating others, it seems like we regressed 50 years, that we lost all we fought for.

 

But God tells us that we need to pray for everyone, yes, even people you can’t stand.

 

You need to pray for all people

You need to pray for your enemies, for your ex’s, for the people that talk behind your back….

Yes it’s hard, people have done you wrong..why would you pray for them?

 

“Pray that they get hit by a car maybe, that’s the only prayer I’m praying for them” you might be saying …let’s be real we all thought of it one time or another.

 

“Wait you want me to pray for that person who begged me for money, then sits up in church with their new outfit on and still haven’t paid me yet?”

 

Yes, God says we need to pray and it’s I know it’s hard, I’ve been there, I’m mad I don’t want to pray, I don’t even like them, I’m sure as hell ain’t praying for them or for them to get blessings.

 

But the bible says “Ask God to help them…intercede on their behalf and give thanks for them”

 

Sometimes we ask God where are you? In this time of turmoil, as our country lays in unrest, we don’t understand. We ask why have you forsaken me?

 

We are human…we cry out but they hurt us, they lied, they cheated, they did me wrong, how can I pray for them and ask God to bless them…are you kidding? Did you hear what I said they did to me?”

“How can I pray for people who are hating others, who are taking our rights away, who clearly want to divide the country?”

 

This message is for the world…we need to pray for everyone, the hate mongers, the lying people, the government even our president, even if you didn’t vote for him…we still need to pray for him.

 

This was a message for the world…no matter who we voted for…we are told in the bible that we need to pray

 

“Pray this way for kings and for all in authority so that we can live in peace”

 

Yes, we are commanded to pray for our leaders, our government, it is on us to bring peace to the world.

We need to be the light for the rest of the world, we need to set the example, to show love and forgiveness, to pray, yes even for our enemies, we need to be the change.

 

So today my friends remember, we as Christians are suppose to be Christ like, we are suppose to love, to show love, be love. To forgive, to pray, to show kindness even when none is shown to us…

 

That is what Jesus did, that is what he died for and even there he asked for forgiveness and he prayed for the ones who did this to him…even as they were killing him…he prayed for them…

This is our nation…even as they are killing it, we need to pray for it and for them.

 

“Be the change you want to see”

 

“And just when the caterpillar thought his life over…he turned into a beautiful butterfly”
