Dear God, help us please!
While visiting with Bro. Gordon Johnson a couple of weeks ago, he related a story to me of when he was a Flying Tiger fighter pilot in the military. In a “dogfight”, he shot down a plane and the pilot parachuted out. Gordon circled around him as he floated down, and the soldier was waving his hands as if to say “don’t shoot me!” Gordon could have, but had no desire to kill a defenseless, defeated foe. Be assured, many would have! We salute Gordon for his act of mercy.
Knowing how traumatic those sort of situations are for decent people, what has happened and is continuing to happen with mass murders of so many defenseless, innocent people in our land is just appalling and beyond comprehension! In 2019, our country is averaging more than 1 such event daily! The “alleged” Dayton coward even killed his sister whom he rode with to the location! I suspect he was right in 1 statement he made – “I’m going to hell and ain’t coming back.” The “alleged”coward in El Paso said he was also going to die, but when he looked down the business end of a gun, his cowardice took over, and he meekly surrendered when Police confronted him. Those officers were amazing in giving him a chance to surrender! We salute them.
The world is in a chaotic mess. The greatest history book ever, the Bible, predicts it and warns us to be ready as these last days unfold. It’s time for Jesus to come back and get us! It must be so close! The last words of Jesus spoken to and through John to us are “Surely I come quickly.” John’s prayer to Jesus follows: “So be it! Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!”
“Dear God, we desperately need your help. We pray for the victims and families of these horrendous acts. We pray for souls to be saved as God’s people minister to victims and families. So many of your people have drifted away from You, and we pray for you to bring us back to you, your church, and your work of bringing the lost to Jesus! We pray for our country, our leaders, that we may have peaceful lives as we seek to do your will.Lord, please help us!”
