Keeping informed of all the world’s troubles?
Aggravated to watch the TV news?
We see a few selected quotations
And the scenes to prove what the stations choose.
What should a caring Christian do?
Pray for those people you see on the screen,
That God would send what they need,
To the good guys, as well as the mean:
Repentance for a hardened heart,
Honesty and wisdom for those who seek,
Help, very soon, for the struggling,
Strength for the uncertain and weak.
Remember the purpose of these troubles?
The Bible describes our Creator’s way,
Conviction now might lead to change of heart;
We will each see the LORD on Judgment Day!
Summon your faith in place of frustration,
This is a positive thing you can do;
God has a blessing for those seeking Him,
So, then pray for your own family, too.
