In a World of Turmoil—Pray!

July 25, 2017
In a World of Turmoil—Pray!
Recent violence in Jerusalem has led to restricted access to several key areas in the Old City, including one of Islam’s holiest sites, the Al-Aqsa Mosque. In the midst of the conflict, Nidal Aboud, a Palestinian Christian, recently made international news by showing his solidarity with Muslim men at their regular Friday prayers.

He says, “I asked my Muslim friends for their permission to pray between them. They were asking me to stand beside them.” Joining them with his Bible in hand, Aboud was demonstrating the peace he would like to see among people everywhere in a world rife with growing violence.

Increasing conflicts around the world are signs pointing us to the approaching end of our world as we know it. In the midst of this turmoil, we can find hope in Jesus’ words, “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled” (Matthew 24:6). As followers of Christ, we have His example to pray for God’s will to be done on earth (Luke 11:2). His desire is for all His children to be rescued from the wiles of the devil. As His disciples, we have the opportunity to make a difference in our world through our faithful prayers and Bible work.

In accomplishing this work of sharing the truths from God’s Word with the world, Jesus said, “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest” (Matthew 9:38). And in Jesus’ prayer for His followers, He prayed, “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one” (John 17:15).

Jesus also urged us to pray for ourselves as the dangers and delusions of the last days will tempt us to turn from our faith. “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation” (Matthew 26:41).
