Praying for Rain!

Father,

We ask for Your intervention and for rain for the western states engulfed in flames that no life may be lost.  We thank You for being a loving God, full of mercy and grace.  We praise You for being the only wise God and thank You for hearing and answering prayers.  In Jesus’ name, we pray and thank You, Amen!

I Just Don’t Understand

How on earth can we as human beings disregard the life of another?

How can we maim, disfigure, and kill children and those we say, we once loved?

Why do we need an assault weapon to defend our homes when the truth of the matter is, if someone breaks in while we’re at home, the first shot will (for those with any sense) scare off any others?

Why does any sane person need more than gun in one household?

Are we so insecure within ourselves that we have to prove something to others?

What do we have to prove and why do we need to prove anything to anyone else?

Why would a mother leave two young children alone in a home at night?

Why couldn’t a neighbor be trusted to look after the children?

Are we so wicked that none can trust us to look after children to keep them from harm?

Why can’t fathers take care of their children? After all, the children did not make that decision to be created or born?

Why can’t mothers love and nurture the children they brought into this world?

Why must the media report everything so that everyone will know exactly how to undermine whatever is being planned?

Why can’t we–just love one another–care for one another–be respectful of one another–regard all life as sacred–be mindful of the fact that however we live our lives and how we do it, will determine our fate and what we will receive from others?

“Beloved, let us love one another.” If we love, we won’t hurt, discourage, kill, or disparage others. If we love–we will be loved. Tell someone today that you love them, while you yet have a chance!
