Day 170 - Prayers for London
Where are we headed?
Couldn't we each be responsible for creating harmony, in ourselves, within our families and in our sphere of influence?
How are suicide bombers are recruited and trained? Are we now so politically correct we've forgotten the basic principles of evangelism ourselves?
We add our prayers for all individuals and families affected by the events in London.
The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will...
"My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me."
(Selected passages, Romans 8 and John 17, NIV)
