It is quite distressing to hear voices that say "oh well that is the way of the world" as if to except the strife. To go along with the pain. Feed into the greed and sin. No this is not the way of God's world. Of course there are obstacles in life. But we do not have to accept complacency.We have the power of prayer. We can stand in the gap for others. God is a mighty mighty God. All that this world is going through, it has gone through before. It is up to us to be on the right side of God everyday. Prayer changes things. And if the world seems to be in a downward spiral, does not mean that you have to be. Pick your self up, grab someone by the hand and say come with me. I have something to show you. Get on your hands and knees and thank God for what you have. Thank him for what he is going to show you. And love your fellow man.
Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
