There is so much going in the world that it is overwhelming, like… My prayer list is super long. It may be because we have more access to global events, but it is some good and a lot of BAD! From the sheer racism that are happening on college campuses, the ongoing killings of POC by some law enforcement, to the most atrocious slaughters that have happened just within this week alone. I just wish the teachings of love and community were more permissible and accepted as opposed to worthless material gains and ridiculous aspirations to “fame”.
When was the last time you really enjoyed your family and friends, without looking at your phone, without trying to keep up with the Jones’ of soc. Media? I mean when was the last time you even thanked the Higher Power for what he has done for you and your loved ones? I mean, I can’t even do the “#prayfor[inserttheatrocityhere]” because it does not feel right to me. I stay prayed up no matter what. So pray to whomever or whatever suits all conditions, and do it wholeheartedly because the whole world needs it. Remember:
Prayer should be your first response, not your last resort.
Allow that to marinate. Have a great weekend to all.
