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.

Please 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.”

-Isaiah 9:6
