A Prayer for Calm

I received this prayer from a ministry friend in Florida, and it's too good not to share with all my friends:
"Father, in the Holy Name of Jesus we approach the throne of grace asking for mercy and guidance to the city of Sanford, FL. We ask, Oh Lord, that your Word will be felt and adhered to in Sanford and surrounding areas.  We seek the peace and welfare of that city. Help all citizens of the area to realize that we are all Your creation, that in Your eyes there are no differences, not black or white, that all of us are precious to You and that You sent you beloved Son to die for all, that all we have to do is to accept Him as our Savior. 
 
Do not let false prophets destroy that city. Confuse their tongues that no violence and strife will arise in the city of Sanford. We have seen or heard of those who wish to foment strife there and we ask Father that You turn them away from the power of the enemy and lead them unto the Light that is Jesus.  Open their eyes, minds and hearts to knowledge of You and Your peace.
 
In the name of Jesus we thank you because we know you are working on this request."
 
Amen!

Should be very interesting regardless of whatever verdict is returned.

True; the words of that Chinese curse keep coming to mind. Sigh...

Rev. Paul,

Nice prayer. I just hope the outcome of the case remains in the court room and not on the streets.

Rev. Paul said...

That is what Alicia & Diana area praying for. Our job is to agree, and then believe & expect God to make it so. :)
