Prayer for Jamaica
May 25, 2010
We know our Father that the hour is desperate.
We come to you with heavy and anxious hearts.
The disturbing images, the frightening sounds, have brought a unease to our thumbing hearts.
Our paradise home is feeling the heat of hell.
We see our loved ones cuddled in fear and they have a fainting hope.
Yes, the multiplying social ills have turned to dangerous cancers that threaten to choke Jamaica’s vitality.
So we lift of heads heaven wards and utter help!
We need courage, and strength, and wisdom, and yes Divine guidance.
Come in the fullness of Your Spirit!
Blow a breeze of peace and calm, and may a miracle occur to lead to the cessation of violence.
Comfort us as we mourn our losses, and supply your healing balm to bind up our wounds.
Let us remember that You are our true fortress of strength, and as we look forward to a new day of possibility.
May Your eternal principles of justice and peace rule our hearts and fire our imagination for what is possible for a rebuilt Jamaica.
We pray this in the strong name of Jesus our Lord. Amen!!!
