Praying for peace in a situation like Syria seems so distant. So removed.
Besides, it’s more of a political thing, right?
What could a few people huddled together for prayer do for an international political crisis?
These situations oftentimes get relegated to the generic, mention-it calls to pray. I will give plenty of voice to my “world crisis,” but rarely remember to pour out a beckon for God’s hand of intervention such foreign affairs.
It’s weird…there are so many things to pray for, both global and personal, that we result to catch-all prayers to save us all time.
Lord, forgive me. Forgive us.
What’s something you can target today in prayer?
