God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Psalm 46:1-33
No matter what happens in our lives and in the world we live in, we serve a Mighty God who saves, protects, heals and restores. He can bring good out of the most horrific situations. He can awaken the heart that has lost hope.
We do not always understand why terrible things happen in this world, but I know that man has been given a free will from God. Some people choose to do good and some people choose to live a life of evil.
Today, we pray for those that have been affected by the Manchester terrorist attack…
Dear God of All Comfort,
We ask you to minister to hearts that have been overcome by fear. Lord, strengthen them with your great love. We ask you to comfort those that have lost loved ones, and we ask you to heal hearts and bodies that have been affected by the attack. Lord, touch the nation of England. Draw its people closer to you. Let them come to a saving knowledge of you. Let those there that already know you be instruments of Your grace and peace.
Heavenly Father we come against Satan and speak confusion to his plans. We bind him and his angels in the name of Jesus. We ask that you judge those that have chosen to do such a thing to those that You, Jesus, love so very much. Come Lord like a flood and heal England. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.

His twisted hand caught the Savior’s eye
Did Christ ridicule in reply?
He had the man stand before the group
But on the Sabbath day what was He to do?
The Pharisees held to the letter of the law
To heal on the Sabbath to them would be wrong
Jesus, with compassion, asked the man to
Stretch forth his hand
All became well at His command
Perfection overcame imperfection
Wholeness overruled disease’s insurrection
The Pharisees were outraged
At the freedom of Jesus’ faith
How could He heal on our holy day
They conspired to kill the Christ
Death verses Life
On this day when Jesus healed the man
With a withered hand
