Dear RCC Family, If you are like me, you are troubled and disturbed over the events that transpired at our nation’s capital yesterday. How should we respond as Christians? One way we can respond is through fervent, heartfelt prayer. Let’s take time over the next days to pray the Lord’s Prayer, seeking God’s direction, healing, and grace. “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name” Begin your prayer with praise and adoration of God. Healing for our nation’s spiritual and social problems begins with turning toward God, “hallowing” his name through worship, and repenting of sin. “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” Pray for God’s loving presence and transformative rule (his kingdom) to arrive in the hearts of his people and the witness of his church. Pray for Christians to embody the values of heaven (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control) to encourage healing, unity, and peace in our divided nation. “Give us today our daily bread” Ask God to provide for the physical and spiritual needs of our family members, friends, and neighbors during these uncertain times. “Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors” Pray that social and political divisions in our country can be mended through forgiveness, empathy, and love. Pray for more listening, understanding, and civility between citizens with differing experiences and ideologies. Pray for Christians to have courage to serve as “peacemakers.” “And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.” Pray for God to deliver us from the sin that corrupts our hearts, a corruption that leads to hate, violence, selfishness, idolatry, and a loss of love toward one another. Pray for our political leaders to turn from evil motives and surrender to the authority and wisdom of God. Pray that the light of Christ, showcased in the lives of God’s people, to overcome the darkness of the Evil One. Blessings, Greg ... See more
