Houston Police Department
Dear Lord, life as we live always have a way of revealing Your word in our hearts and the more we read the more we see past the darkness of this world. Your word has the power to raise the dead, destroy sickness, and disrupt the plots and plans of our adversary, the devil. Trouble, as we see it, may endure for a moment but one word from You can make the impossible possible, plausible, and more than probable. We know and understand that You operate in the past tense because Your eyes see the future and present at the same time. How unsearchable are Your ways and unfathomable are Your judgments. Yesterday, in our city, there were several police officers that were either shot and injured and though we don’t know all details of the situations, we realize that there are families that are grieving and wondering how could a loving God allow this tragedy to happen to their love ones and Father God, although we can speculate and forensically predicate motives, we still can’t answer the question why? It is in these dark times that we reach up instead of out to hear a word from You and it is our prayer this day that You allow Your word to usher in Your indestructible light so that peace may be stilled in all of our troubled hearts. The peace we are praying for is not as the world gives. Furthermore God, search the secret chambers of our own hearts and test us and know our thoughts and see if there be any evil in us and lead us to the pathway of everlasting because as for me and my house, we will serve You…in season and out of season because we know You will never leave us or forsake us and that’s why we declare boldly that the Lord is helper and we will not fear, what can mere mortals do to us…in Jesus’ name…we walk in the light of Your word because we are the light of the world…amen.
