Matthew 24:6-8 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of the birth pains.
Do you know anyone currently serving in the military? Say a prayer of protection for them.
Do you know anyone who previously served in the military? Say a prayer of praise for their service to our country.
Do you know anyone who lost their life while serving in the military? Say a prayer for their family as they live every day with that loss.
God is in control. Even during the ugly parts of life – war, famines and earthquakes – God is in control. His plan is bigger than we can understand, which is why He warns us of the ugly. War is necessary at times, but oh so ugly and hard to understand. Every person who serves is a part of God’s plan.
Thank you for your service.
