Suffering

I cannot comprehend all the sad situations that are headline news right now. I pray for Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, and so many places where there is war and suffering.

How do we pray for peace in the region, when there is no end to the conflict?
The Bible says, "Jesus is our Peace."

Many on both sides are turning to Jesus but there will not be peace on earth until He comes back.

He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.
Ephesians 2:14-17

This post reminds me of Philippians 4:7

"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

I hope you have a good weekend, Karen.

And it is heartbreaking for those who reject the peace He offers. All the news stories are so disheartening and I am overwhelmed by the freedom we still enjoy here, even when the news stories here are so disturbing.
So thankful for the peace we have in Jesus.

Praying for everyone who needs peace and who needs Jesus.
Blessing,

I so love your heart for the things that break God's heart and your passion to pray harder for healing peace. The world seems sadder more often now - - - part of it being the news traveling so quickly but more and more because people are not close to our precious Jesus!
