Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I. Send me!" -- Isaiah 6:8 ESV
The horrible London terror attacks over the weekend shocked the world, even more so because it occurred right on the heels of the Manchester attacks. Unfortunately, attacks like these are a constant reminder that there is evil in our world. Prayers are an absolute must in times like these; however, it is important to remember that prayer is not just our way of talking at God. Prayer is a conversation with our Lord, when we are closest to Him and able to hear Him clearly; that means that he is answering, if we only pause to listen. God has a plan for each of us, as well as the entire world. There is evil in this world, but instead of asking God "why?", listen for him to tell you what to do. Today, pray for those affected by the recent terror attacks, but also listen for God to speak into your life. He put each of us here for a reason.
