We spend so much time and energy seeking the things of this world. Yet, we so frequently fail to recognize that the true gifts---the perfect gifts are from You and come through You---the One Who never changes. How simple, yet abundant our lives can be, Father, when we simply pursue You instead. Help us, Lord, to make You our first priority, that in You we may find lifes very best, and secure our place with You in eternity.
Lord, we ask that You place loving Christians in the paths of each of our military men and women so that they receive every opportunity possible to accept Your beautiful gift of salvation. Hide them in the shadow of Your wings, Lord, so that they may be safe always and return home to their loved ones at the appointed time. May this time of service be one in which they grow to depend on You for all that they need.
Lord, guide our Supreme Court members as they announce their decisions on various marriage issues this week. We know what Your will is, Lord, and we pray that they submit to that will as well. Grant them the courage to rule according to Your truth, even when it may not be popular.
Help us, Father, in these troublesome times. We cannot survive this present evil day without You. Be very near us and help us to keep our eyes upon You alone. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
Please join us in prayer.
Please join us in prayer.
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
When airplane pilots are training, they spend many hours in flight simulators. These simulators give the students a chance to experience the challenges and dangers of flying an aircraftbut without the risk. The pilots dont have to leave the ground, and if they crash in the simulation, they can calmly walk away.
Simulators are tremendous teaching toolshelpful in preparing the aspiring pilot to take command of an actual aircraft. The devices, however, have a shortcoming. They create an artificial experience in which the full-blown pressures of handling a real cockpit cannot be fully replicated.
Real life is like that, isnt it? It cannot be simulated. There is no safe, risk-free environment in which we can experience lifes ups and downs unharmed. The risks and dangers of living in a broken world are inescapable. Thats why the words of Jesus are so reassuring. He said, These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world (John 16:33).
Although we cant avoid the dangers of life in a fallen world, we can have peace through a relationship with Jesus. He has secured our ultimate victory.
Read: John 16:25-33
