Pray for Paris

The terrorists have struck again. This time either killing, kidnapping, or injuring 100 innocent people. And not only that, but harming the hearts of those that are related or friends to these people. Let's pray, asking God to heal all the broken hearts that are suffering right now.

Taking verses from my previous post God is in Control that I think would be applicable in such a time as this.

Proverbs 16:4 The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.

Proverbs 19:21 Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

Genesis 50:20  As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. 

Once again, it's the trust that we need to have in God. Belief that He is in control, even in the darkest hours. 

In the darkest hour, I must face
I'm counting on your grace
To give me all I need

Sunless days and cheerless nights will pass
And work their work at last
To form  your joy in me

For when I am weak
I find that you are strong

And all I really need is your grace
All I need to know is you are near me
All I need is you

All I really need is your grace
All I need to know is you are for me
All I need is you
All I need is you

~ All I Really Need

I would encourage you to also check out Olivia's post #PrayforParis where she shares her thoughts on the Paris attack as well as some Bible verses too. 

God is in control!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! :)
I LOVE comments, so please do leave one! I will try and reply as soon as possible :D If you comment under Anonymous, please leave a name (it can be made up or real, your choice ;)
Oh, and as you all probably know, my family and I are under pseudonyms (you didn’t really think I had a brother named Spiderman or Ironman, did ya? We’re weird, but not 'that' weird! :P) If you do know our real names, please don’t say it in the comment box. Public safety stuff ;) Thanks!

Finally, brothers (and sisters!), whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things
