Pray without ceasing: Joy

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances,; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18

With every breaking news update, with every alert ping on my phone, with every news broadcast, this is what brings me hope and joy. Prayer. Prayers of gratitude. Prayers for help. Prayers for calm. Prayers for wisdom on all of our parts, in all that we do. Prayers for those making decisions that affect people’s lives and livelihoods. Prayers for the sick. Prayers for the caregivers. Prayers for those still serving others. Prayers for the dying. prayers for those who have died. Prayers for those they leave behind. Prayers for hope. Prayers for a way through. Prayers for God’s presence every step of the way.

Thanks be to God! Thanks Be to God!
