Lord Jesus, we fix our eyes on You. It's a choice we must make to gaze upon You and place our dependence on You. We are so tempted to dart our eyes over the landscape of what's in front of us.
Fear overtakes us in both the circumstances in our private world and the news of what's happening in our world at large - so much pain, so much sorrow, so much devastation. We weep over this broken world we live in. We feel overwhelmed, afraid and so very sad. We are desperate for YOU to make all of this right.
This bombing in England is so senseless and so horrific. So we take our eyes and choose to fix them on You and You alone. We pray Jehovah Shalom over all of this. We pray for Your power to break the chaos of the enemy and destroy his evil plans. We pray for Your supernatural comfort to be lavished upon those grieving families. And we pray that You would help us feel Your peace in the midst of all of this, Lord.
We need You. Oh, how we need You, Lord. We look to You and cry out, Lord Jesus, help us. In Your Almighty Name, Jesus, we pray, Amen.
