A Prayer for Healing

Our nation is in need of a lot of healing these days. Let these guiding words of N. T. Wright from The Challenge of Jesus point us in the right direction:

“Our task as image-bearing, God-loving, Christ-shaped, Spirit-filled Christians, following Christ and shaping our world, is to announce redemption to a world that has discovered its fallenness, to announce healing to a world that has discovered its brokenness, [and] to proclaim love and trust to a world that knows only exploitation, fear, and suspicion.”

By God’s grace, may we as Christians be the agents of calm and help and hope in the midst of these unsettled, uncertain and unstable times.
