Everyone is going to have a different response to what is happening in our world, and as I prayed for the nation I love and the world I love, this is what came out of my heart for our nation and the nations of the world. Oh that we would “Love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and love our neighbor as ourself.” For my prayer is that “you may prosper and be in good health even as your soul prospers.” Because “it’s His kindness that leads us to repentance”, and we need “His kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.” For with “the increase of lawlessness the love of many has grown cold,” so “the devil is seeking to steal, kill and destroy, but You are giving us life and life abundantly.” 
My prayer is that, “the eyes of our hearts would be opened, so we could grasp how wide, how, long and deep the love of God is for us.” He said, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard what God has planned for us,” but we know, “the plans you have for us are for good and not for evil, to give us a future and a hope.” 
Therefore, we will remember, “our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against rulers, powers, and spiritual forces of wickedness in heavenly places.” We will also remind ourselves that “our weapons are not carnal, but they are mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds.” 
Our response to the earth’s pain will not be blame or shame but a cry for the Lord of heaven and earth, “to forgive us, for we know not what we do” and “to send laborers out into the harvest field for the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” 
“Now may the God of peace, guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” and “may the peace of God that passes all understanding” be your portion. “For if God is for us, who can be against us.” “To God be the glory in the church, forever and ever, AMEN.”
