Praying for Our World Near and Far

The news continues to be full of sad and frightening stories that are often beyond our comprehension.  But this is an important call to continued prayer.  Looking internationally, eyes are currently focused on Nepal.  The continued aftershocks and possibility of more earthquakes in that region make for an uncertain future.  If you would like to give financially in order to help Nepal you can click on the picture below or this link for more information: MTW Disaster Response Ministry.

Let us also pray for America (to my international friends I’m sure there are many ways you can pray for the country in which you’re living).  Please pray for Baltimore and the families and communities impacted by the riots and unrest.  It’s easy to look around and see places and people who need prayer but who might seem far away or disconnected from us and our daily lives.  So let us to forget to pray for our own states and communities as well as family and friends.

“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”  James 5:16
