As many of us have seen the bloodshed from the terrorist attacks in India, let us pray that the Indian government makes wise, well-thought-out decisions. During the first week of Advent, we pray for hope that is only found in Jesus Christ. The following weeks we pray for (2) love, (3) joy, and (4) peace. As we think about Christ’s coming as a small, peaceful, innocent child, think about his life, and wait patiently for his second appearing, let us pray that such things as hope, love, joy, and peace (not bitterness, anger, hatred, and resentment) will be at the forefront of our minds, and the minds of the leaders in India.
[Jim Wallis stirred this thought in me to pray for India.]
