Prayer in the Days of Terrorism

Nonni wrote this prayer after 9-11.  However its a prayer that could fit lots of troubled times.

 “Lord Jesus, as I look at all the evil, violence and instability all around us, help me remember:

All authority on earth and in heaven has been given to You, and You will give it to no one, nor will you allow anyone to steal it.

You have pre-determined the outcome of everything, and it all works for good for those who love You.

You know everything and no one can trick You nor sneak anything past You.  You never sleep.

You will bring everything to a conclusion that satisfies Your justice, love and mercy–You will never leave loose threads hanging at the end of any story.

You are Love, and we all need to meditate on what that means in all its fulness.

You care intimately – even for the sparrow.  You know every hair on our heads and every cell in our bodies.

We have nothing to fear–You hold us in the palm of Your hand–what a perfect place to be!”
