Do you ever feel like things are swirling vigorously around you & all you can do is pray?
This weekend felt like that in Tulsa.
We had a boisterous mix of activities slated, including Juneteenth celebrations, Black Lives Matter demonstrations, and the Trump rally all occurring in town.
Even though we live miles away from the epicenter of all the potential chaos, we still felt the tension and the weight of all these activities converging on our city at one time, especially during a pandemic.
People all over the city prayed for PEACE. We prayed for Tulsa to be a breath of CALM amidst the maelstrom of distress in our nation. We prayed for KINDNESS to overcome acts of disruption. We prayed for our leaders to have enduring STRENGTH & DISCERNMENT to make wise decisions. We prayed for UNITY to overwhelm discord. We prayed for HEALING not more hurt. We prayed for LOVE to prevail.

We are grateful for HIS merciful provision and continue to seek HIS guidance over our individual lives, community, and nation each day.
