~What's the color is crisis?
Is it red? for blood in the street
Or blue? for the broken heart
Or black? for the darkness
Or white? for the lack of any color, red or blue or black or…
Perhaps neither, or all,
or a mixture of two
Say purple? A mix of red and blue
With a shade of grey—white and black together
Perhaps the color of crisis is
two colors mixed—red & blue
two hands joined—black & white
The clock still ticks, the sun still rises and sets, so why do the mundane, the normal and typical seem so out of place?
Such is the uneasy feeling of crisis.
How do we respond to a loved one or a friend or an acquaintance or a nation in crisis?
How do we do more than ‘like’ or ‘share’ a facebook post?
Can we actually do something that makes a difference.
When we click on a ‘PRAY FOR…” this or that, do we?
Do we really stop and ask the One who can make a difference, if He will? The God of All Comfort is able and willing and wanting to hear—and heal.
Prayer is calling 911
and then doing our part
doing what we see
to help with the need
If all you can do is pray
Then, pray well
Prayer activates The Balm
That relieves the bomb
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version (KJV)
