Prayer

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.”  Romans 8:28

Dear Lord, we pray for your world, and especially for countries in turmoil at this time.  Would you intervene to bring peace to Syria, Hong Kong, Kashmir and between Israel and Palestine.  We pray too for our own country and its different nations.  Thank you that your power and wisdom are greater than any human plan; help us to trust you for guidance and blessing through times of uncertainty, for the sake of Jesus your Son. Amen.
