Pray For The World

Waking up yesterday morning I went through Instagram and of course the “Pray For Paris” posts were all over my feed and so I definitely knew something was up. The thing is, how many of us actually stop to pray? Now, I’ve been seeing posts that are a bit against people using the french flag as their profile picture backgrounds and so I’ll just like to remind everyone not to get carried away. The world right now is broken and reflecting back on the book of revelation it doesn’t seem to me that things are going to be “fixed” unfortunately. You see, the thing is, there would always be wars and chaos because we humans fail to understand that you can’t fight hate with hate, it just won’t work. A group would always try to one-up the other…..leading to more choas. This frightens me and makes me worry about kids right now and soon to be born babies who one day would have to learn to live the harsh reality they were born into but then as Michael Jackson said (bless him) “β€œIn a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” So right now we need to actively work to restore humanity into the world.
Lets stop the blame game, the world is already pretty much broken, this is not the time to put the blame on muslims, or complain about someone using the French flag’s background or the media not covering some parts of the world. This is a time to stand as one, no divisions. Let stop to actually and actively pray for peace in the world <that means Nigeria, Paris, Syria, Beirut, Belgium, England, India…..everywhere! because we really could use a lot of God’s peace right now>. For Nigerians at church on Sunday, don’t recite the “Prayer for Nigeria in distress” Pray it and live the prayer!
Lets all work to be better people to one another, person at a time, lets render help whenever and wherever needed, and most importantly lets live our lives in such a way that if we do get “called” to God abruptly we would be ready to face Him.To me, all these killings have been sort of a reminder to live right because to be very honest “Eyen le ku any foken time”, <One can die anytime>. God forbid sudden and untimely death but we all know it can happen anytime. When you get before God you don’t want to be looking confused, it’ll sadly be too late.
On the final note, stayed blessed and safe!
