I woke with a heavy heart this morning, when I heard about the bombings in Brussels. Another community has been devastated by violence and terrorism. A city of people has been wounded and thrust into fear, and a group of people whom I love and think about constantly have been put in danger.
I rest in the strength of God, however and turn to perhaps the most powerful weapon we have: prayer. As much as my heart breaks for what has happened, God hurts for them even more. I ask that you please take the time today to pray.
- For the wounded and critically injured
- For the families of those who were killed
- For the families still waiting to hear if their loved ones are safe
- For the citizens whose lives have been threatened and homes have been shrouded in fear
- For emergency workers who have committed themselves to protecting all of those mentioned above and more
- For Convoy of Hope Europe to be able to effectively reach out to its community in comfort and love during this time
- For protection for its staff
- For future staff members who may now face fervent opposition from loved ones not to go where God has called them
- For peace that surpasses all understanding, and can only be given by the God whom we trust and love
Your prayers not only mean the world to us – they mean the difference between a city struck by calamity, and a city held and comforted by the arms of the LORD.
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
