I am praying for…

Sin is unavoidable when there is much talk. –Proverbs 10:19
So. much. talking.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Many speak from a deceitful heart (Jeremiah 17:9) ??????? ??? ???? ?? ?????? (1 Corinthians 2:16). Ouch. I try, but I don’t always get it right, either. I just dust myself off and keep pressing towards the mark (Philippines 3:14). This isn’t to imply that we shouldn’t call out injustices. On the contrary! ????? ?? ??? ?? ????? ??? ????? ?? ????, ????? ?? ???? ?? ?????!
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Responding in the flesh requires digging deep in HIS nourishing words, encouraging us to speak life and give grace… because, as children of God, ??? ????????? to current events, and each other, ?????? ???? ?????????.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I could ramble about the pLandemic I believe ALL OF 2020 to be (and I may do that – because WE ARE BEING DECEIVED, even on the topic of Mr. Floyd). It’s safe to say, I don’t agree with, nor do I believe in, the current narrative playing out. BELIEVE ME, at this point in my journey, I want to grab the world by its collective shoulders and scream “WAKE THE HELL UP!”  But ??? ???? ???? ???????? ????? ??? ????? ????? ?? ? ???????. His still small voice (1 Kings 19:12). Sigh… I’m trying.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
My heart hung heavy yesterday as demonic spirits purposefully orchestrated evil intent for our nation. For me, posting anything other than ???? felt irreverent. I pray that heaviness lingers in our spirits, motivating us to press through the noise of the crowd to touch the hem of His garment for our hurting nation.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I am praying for:
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Our ??????? – we are instructed to pray for them. (I Timothy 2). Our ????????? – living under a dividing spirit of confusion and fear, which is NOT from God (1 Corinthians 14:33). Our ???????? – growing up in a world which lacks discernment deciphering current events.
Our ???????? – a renewed hunger for relationship with Christ, a desire to hear HIS voice among the crowd, and wisdom in leadership.

Our ??????? & ?????? – that they would have scars healed, scales removed from their eyes, and a receptive spirit – willing to unlearn and relearn.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Storms can bring fear, cloud judgment, and create confusion. Yet God promises that as you seek Him through prayer, He will give you wisdom to know how to proceed. The only way you will survive the storm will be on your knees. -Paul Chappell
