UMC churches in the area put together a call and response prayer.
For those who have seen their lives torn apart by violence of all kinds
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
For the family of Michael Brown, his friends and his community. For all those who grieve the loss of life tragically…
Studying, praying, working towards His Will and His Good. Taking His Love Test and walking with Him in His Wilderness. // “I’ll give you a new heart, put a new spirit in you. I’ll remove the stone heart from your body and replace it with a heart that is God-Willed not self-willed. I’ll put My Spirit in you…” Ezekiel 36:26-27 (MSG)
What seem our worst prayers may really be, in God’s eyes, our best. Those, I mean, which are least supported by devotional feeling. For these may come from a deeper level than feeling. God sometimes seems to speak to us most intimately when he catches us, as it were, off our guard.
