Prayer is a legitimate response.
So I was heartened yesterday, in the midst of the disturbing events taking place in the USA, when one of the former Moderators of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada shared a prayer in the PCC’s facebook group:
I don’t know that I have much to add to that. I have wept for my friends in the States more this year than any year in living memory. I pray that the this latest moment of crisis there would be a catalyst to bring a broken and divided nation to a better, unified, peaceful day.
Until tomorrow, dear friends, may you pray in the Spirit and know God’s peace.
