Pray for Boston

My earlier post today was written a couple of weeks ago and scheduled to publish today. However, in light of what happened in Boston yesterday I’d like to share with you something one of my bloggy friends posted today. This is from Raymond Candy’s “As Seen Through the Eyes of Faith” blog.

No Weapon Formed Against Thee Shall Prosper

Please pray for the People of Boston, MA USA, for the wounded, their families, and the families of those who lost their lives in the senseless terrorist attack that happened yesterday. Please pray not only for the people of Boston, but for all of those who were visiting there from other cities and nations. Please pray also for those who suffer and live under the threat of such attacks around the world daily. Please pray for all, but especially those of the household of faith.

And as we pray, let us stand in the gap and claim on their behalf the blessed promise from the Lord that,

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”  (Isa 54:17)

Thank you, Raymond, for saying so well what so many of us are thinking and praying.

He Cares for You

1Pet5-7

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world. After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you. To Him be dominion forever and ever. Amen. —1 Peter 5:6-11
