When the World is Hurting

We may have never seen it more clearly than this week.

How fear, hate, and division can gather momentum, eat away like a cancer.

I don’t pretend to understand. I don’t have any answers, except for Christ. But today I pray for comfort, for healing, for justice, for safety, for peace.

“To you we lift up our eyes,

O you who are enthroned in the heavens!

…our eyes look to the Lord our God,

till he has mercy upon us.

Have mercy upon us, o Lord,

Have mercy upon us,

for we have had more than enough of contempt.”

Psalm 123
