Shepastor: "Let Us Pray..."

"The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much." James 5:17, KJV

What a powerful testimony the families of Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry, and Michele Knight have! Although we had not heard of Michele, the prayers extended to all of the girls. Those families refused to give up hope, even when others had. We give God praise that they were found alive.

We must now join the families and our communities in new prayers...

Let us pray for the ladies and their families as they adjust to their new normal...

Let us pray that they all receive the counseling services that will help them to overcome post traumatic stress syndrome...

Let us pray that we will be more aware of our surroundings, our neighbors, and our communities, that we will resist paranoia, but will be discerning...

Let us bathe our communities in specific prayers that sex trafficking, kidnapping, rape, pediphilia, and all other forms of abuse will be exposed, prosecuted and eradicated...

Let us pray for healing, health, wholeness and peace for them all.

May we never forget and may we listen and learn.

Hear our prayers oh Lord, incline thine ear to us and grant us thy peace.

Until next Wednesday,
In faith, hope and perseverance,
Pastor Chris
