Midweek Morsel: Prayer in Violent Times


Our world has seen some violent times over the past couple of months. The events in Syria and Egypt spring to mind. Violence of a different sort happens regularly within our own borders—like we saw with the mass shooting earlier this week in Washington, D.C.

What can we do in the face of such things? We can pray. As in the scripture below, we can ask God to bring an end to the violence. Join me, won’t you?

“O righteous God, who searches minds and hearts, bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure.” Psalm 7:9
