ISIS is breeding fear, evil, destruction, murder, and chaos in the world.
Who can battle all that?
America is bombing ISIS. Turkey is bombing them.
Also Iraq, Australia, and Canada are bombing ISIS.
The U.S. Senate authorized military force against ISIS,
(but it prohibits U.S. combat troops on the ground, except to rescue U.S. soldiers).
Still ISIS marches on. They are growing in number, and in violence.
Who can stop ISIS?
It is time for us to take this fight to God, with prayer!
We may feel helpless to stop the evil of ISIS.
(Even Americans and British citizens are joining ISIS.)
If we pray, then we are not helpless.
(James 4:2) —
You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but cannot get what you want. You fight and war.
Yet you do not have because you do not ask God. —
So ask in prayer!
Pray to God to stop the murders.
Pray to stop the destruction of neighborhoods and towns.
God, please stop people from joining ISIS.
Change their hearts and minds to stop the violence.
Oh God, only you know their weaknesses.
Only you, God have the power to defeat them.
We are crying out for your help, God!
Don’t let us fight this battle alone.
Send your warrior angels, LORD!
Jesus is the Prince of Peace.
Send your Son back to Earth to usher in His justice and peace.
(Matthew 16:27) —
For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels,
and then He will reward each person according to what he has done.
(Isaiah 9:6) —
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Oh, Holy Spirit, bring the people to pray.
Remind them to pray when they wake each morning.
Remind them to pray when they hear news of more killings.
Give them compassion to pray for aid for those being persecuted by ISIS,
and also to pray for those lost in the violence of terrorism,
to have a change of heart,
to bring peace to all of us.
Thank you, God for hearing our prayers.
——— Here is a great new idea! ———————
Could you use a reminder to pray each morning?
I have found a new app for our mobile phones.
I have already downloaded it.
The app has an alarm to wake you and show you a Scripture.
Then you can pray to God, and give Him thanks.
It’s a great way to start each morning,
and it could change your whole outlook on life.
I prayed every morning before breakfast,
but I have gotten out of the habit.
I am hoping this app will help me get back to praying every morning.
Right now the app is free, but I don’t know for how long.
Go to First5.org to download the app.
Let me know if you like it.
