Iraq crisis is not showing any signs of settling down, while the threat of ebola virus has worsened over the last couple of months. This means that we will have to pray even harder. Even as recently faith leaders in London united to condemn the atrocities perpetrated by the IS (Islamic State) on the minorities in the country, on the other continent, a mob looted an Ebola Isolation center, and stole contaminated equipment, and bloodstained mattresses.
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourself fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.
We beseech you, O Lord, in your loving-kindness, to pour your holy light into our souls; that we may always be devoted to you, by whose wisdom we were created and by whose providence we are governed; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Andrew Murray, one of most well-known evangelists of 20th century, implored Christians to pray by the power of Holy Spirit, as the special privilege given to God's children through Christ. He reminds believers that they should take hold of the promise they have in being confident that their prayers will be answered by Father. He reminds the reader that, "As much as prayer must be to the Father and through the Son, it must be by the Spirit."
“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” -- C.S.Lewis
