Posted by Al Hathaway Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Some mornings the news is so ominous, so tragic, and so depressing that one wonders if all is lost. There are too many murders, too many children being abused, too many acts of random violence; is it possible that You, O God, have turned your back upon us because of our sinfulness. Unfortunately we have too often made sin the center of our affections; when You require first place in our hearts. Dear God, we renounce any trick or trap of the evil one that is seeking to tempt us and draw us from Your presence. No riches on earth, no fame or fortune is equal to being in Your divine presence. We renounce the fleeting pleasure of sin that stimulates the flesh and diminishes our spirits. We renounce our sense of unforgiveness for deeds done to us; by overlooking the deeds we do unto others. Your word is true, "if my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and heal their land." This morning we humble ourselves, we pray, we seek and we turn. We ask that You speak a word of peace is such a manner that all the people of the world will hear Your voice. Amen.
