We Must Be United in This Effort
“I’d like to begin my remarks today by sending the thoughts and prayers of the entire American people to the victims of the terrorist attack in Manchester. I want to send our condolences to the many families who lost their loved ones. Horrific, horrific injuries. Terrible. Dozens of innocent people, beautiful young children savagely murdered in this heinous attack upon humanity. I repeat again that we must drive out the terrorists and the extremists from our midst, obliterate this evil ideology, and protect and defend our citizens and people of the world. All civilized nations must be united in this effort. This trip is focused on that goal: bringing nations together around the goal of defeating the terrorism that threatens the world, and crushing the hateful ideology that drives it so hard and seems to be driving it so fast.” (President Donald J. Trump, “Remarks by President Trump at the Israel Museum”, 5/23/17)
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Weep with those who weep and pray for the families and friends of those lost in the bombing in Manchester, England. Pray that the wounded and the traumatized fully recover.
Intercede for the heads of many nations and their advisors to be able to work together to stop this common foe—terrorism.
Declare that the demonic ideology of radical Islam would be crushed by the hand of God, so that the captives of it may be free to find the One that loves them— Jesus, precious Jesus.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, our hearts are overwhelmed with grief. We have lost more of our young to radical Islamic terrorism this week. We grieve with those that grieve. We ask You to pour Your healing virtue out on those wounded in body or mind, Lord. We can never let this become common in our hearts and minds. We cannot accept this as our new “normal”. No! We ask You to give strategies to our nation’s leaders, the military leaders and the finest minds among us. Reveal solutions that stop the enemy in its tracks. Give us natural tactics, as You move to destroy radical Islam spiritually, revealing Jesus to the lost, saving their eternal souls. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
We decree that the nations will work together under the direction of the Holy Spirit to unravel radical Islamic terrorism for the sake of the timeline of God.
