How I'm Praying for Hong Kong
As I was praying this morning (after half heartedly browsing Pinterest for half an hour, pinning encouraging verses, avoiding feelings...), I felt we must fight ... fight against avoidance, fear, numbness, apathy ... and pray for God’s help, wisdom, peace, mercy to reign down. For Christians to call out to our Father and pray / act / support as he leads. God will lead and comfort us if we ask him to and if we let him.
He has not abandoned us.
He never would.
He never will.
I believe he understands and is heartbroken too.
May these circumstances draw us closer to him.
God is good and just, we need his help, and can trust all is in his hands. Though we may feel like just one person sometimes, we are soldiers of Jesus. Let’s show him we’re willing to fight. And remember that nothing is too big for God to handle ... he has never lost a battle and he has already won the war. Wherever you are, thank you for praying alongside us here in Hong Kong. Every prayer matters. Let’s keep warfaring, declaring truth, speaking hope. #prayforhongkong
