Pray for America

I'm sure most of you all have heard about all of this craziness going on in our country of late, and it is easy to get caught up in the hype and be frightened by all the things happening around us. 
Our pastor posted this on Facebook earlier, and I felt compelled to share it here.
"Proper perspectives for Christians in these moments:
LOVE is the way forward. Ask God's love to flow through you.
PRAYER will move heaven. Truly believe in the power of prayer.
UNITY must be pursued. Don't divide into factions, stay together.
EMPATHY seeks to understand people's pain.
PEACE is given by God. His children are peace makers.
Sometimes people want spiritual leaders to become partial and take their side. True shepherds will always try to unite the body of Christ, bring healing to the hurting, be where the pain is, pursue a path forward in the love of God. I will always challenge you to forgive, have faith, pray, unite, speak in love, pursue peace. Church, the one thing we have flowing through us that those without Christ do not have is the LOVE OF GOD. Don't forget that.
May the LOVE of Jesus Christ conquer the spirit of murder, hatred, strife, and chaos. Saints we are together!"
We as Christians need to unite and share the love of Christ to everyone (at all times, but especially in these tough times). This is the time for Christians to rise up.
"Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved."
Matthew 24:12,13 (NIV)
So many people are fearful of the things going on around us, and if our hope wasn't fully placed in our Savior Jesus, we too, would be afraid. But we can rest assured knowing that God has everything under control. HE has a plan, and His plan is greater than any plan mankind could come up with.
I encourage you, do not be afraid. God will be with us.              
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will hold you up with my righteous right hand." Isiah 41:10 (NIV)
Let's unite and pray for America together. Pray for the comfort of the families and friends of those who have been killed or affected by the recent goings-on. Pray that the church would rise up and, through all the pain and heartbreak, be a shining light. Our country will never heal until it puts its faith in the Great Healer.

I am believing for revival, a third Great Awakening in America. Who's with me?

Let's keep fighting the good fight, and finish strong.

Love you all! <3
