Pray the News

The news interrupted my plan for this week’s blog.

You’ve heard this before: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend your right to say it.” Here’s my variation on the theme:

I disapprove of what you say, and I will defend my right to pray for your soul.


You see it all, God. Angry words hurled at angry words, judgment piled on judgment, violence facing violence — take away those hearts of stone, Lord. Replace them with hearts of flesh (Ezekiel 36:26). Prince of Peace, fill us all. Restore our souls.

    I have just re-read your prayer from August 15. It has helped to give words to my prayers for our nation. Thank you.

    And thank you, Molly, for continuing to pray for our nation.
