A prayer for despair.

Take your right hand and make a first. Now take your left hand and make a fist. Crash your knuckles into each other, opening your palms as your hands spread away from each other.

This is the spirit world. Every day, every minute, every second. Good and evil are clashing, brawling and fighting for territory on earth.

When bad things happen, it looks like evil is winning. Everyone talks about the evil, thinks about the evil and fears the evil.

“How can we fight the evil?” we ask. “What can we do to make this better?”

But dear friends, we alone are not capable of this fight. We will crumple in sadness and despair at the hopelessness of this fleeting world.

The boldest response to evil is prayer.

We don’t need more programs, rules or regulations. We need more shouts and cries to God for his Kingdom to come quicker to our world.

God save us. Save our world. Save our friends and our neighbors. Show us what to do next for your Kingdom.
