What a concerning time as tensions rise, country against country, race against race, struggling with inflation, gas prices skyrock-eting, hunger or other humanitarian needs of our neighbors near and far. We need to be in prayer for God to guide us through. And we need to pray for the emotional and spiritual strength of all Christians.
