I will & continue to believe that we are ONE body in Christ. With the racial and political differences in this world, we are experiencing a lot of pain. My brothers and sisters in Christ are in pain. However, we must remain steadfast in the Lord and know that Satan will try to break us apart.
Friend, this isn’t the first time I’ve said this. Evil is REAL. Satan wants nothing more than for us to be divided and hate each other. Evil lives and breathes in our lives because we were born into a fallen world.
God, the creator of all mankind, is a God of justice. One day, justice for ALL will be served by a perfectly holy & just God. The evil that exists in this world will always exist until we are in Heaven with our Heavenly Father.
God, please change our hearts. I pray that you will enter into every hardened piece of our heart to bring any grievances and grudges to the surface. We need You, Almighty Father, to heal these broken pieces.

Our hearts need a check-up and fine-tune. Only God can do this. We are ONE body in Christ. Pray for your loved ones, pray for your enemies, pray that the world will come to know Jesus and be saved. God is counting on us to work as His ambassadors in our earthly bodies. We are His vessels here on earth to aid in advancing His Kingdom.
Rest in this truth, friend. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.11″All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish” (Isaiah 41:10-11).
“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.” 2 Corinthians 4:17
God, the God of love, mercy, justice and truth will always prevail and will never leave you. I’m praying for you, friend. Praying that your heart will be at peace. We are in this together because we are one body in Christ.
