Dear Heavenly Father,
Fear, pain, persecution, famine, poverty, violence…happening right now. My heart is in anguish. I know You are anguished too. I pray for those who are in the midst of what is happening right now. I pray that those who know You stand firm in faithfulness. I pray for safety, freedom, and peace. I also pray for those who do not know You, and I pray for salvation. May they be transformed by Your love. The state of our world is in desperation, horrifying circumstances, apathy, and desensitization. I don’t even know exactly how to pray, but my heart is burdened for Your people, for all people. Please set our hearts right before You. I pray Your will is done in Jesus’ name AMEN!
