The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights. Habakkuk 3:19
Prayer changes our perspective. Often, we wonder if God is really listening to us, or even if he really exists. Look around. The world is full of division, hate, intolerance, greed, and injustice. Where is God in all of that?
So much about God is a mystery. When we begin to suggest what God is thinking or doing, we have overstepped our importance in the scheme of things. What we can do is pray to strengthen our faith in God’s plans. Like Habakkuk, we can realize that regardless of what is going on in the world, our faith in God’s wisdom is essential to our well being.
Prayer: Majestic and powerful God, instill in me a deep faith in your ability to bring healing to this hurting world. Use me in your plans for peace, justice, and eternal love. May the Christ in each of us recognize the Christ in the other. Amen.
