Dear Father in Heaven,
My mind is overwhelmed with so many thoughts. I have been experiencing a variety of emotions. It is ridiculous what is happening around the world and at home in Canada. I don’t understand how you can cope with all the evil acts that are destroying this world, trying to kill the human spirit and the loss of innocence. There is no logic or justification for this.
With our human nature we are inclined to take comfort in the rational; seeking the knowledge of why. Yes, the goodness of humanity rises and people are more receptive to prayer and acknowledging that You are God. More people come to You in tragic times but then we retreat back, we turn back to our daily lives until the next tragedy occurs.
I pray that as Your followers we stop slipping into complacency but remain steadfast and vigilant in testifying to Your goodness Oh Lord. We take so much for granted; we are privileged in having so many freedoms to worship yet I feel like people are reserved. Help us to be more conscious of your spirit, to acknowledge the truth and let the Holy Spirit shine. I pray that the Spirit shines through humanity and is contagious in drawing people to Your glorious light.
This is a hard place to live but with You it’s more enjoyable, more sacred, more fulfilling and not so lonely. You are the only source of true comfort and everlasting change.
