Steve Douglass on Praying for the Needs of Our World


“If God is on our side, can anyone be against us? God did not keep back his own Son, but he gave him for us. If God did this, won’t he freely give us everything else?” ~ Romans 8 : 31b – 32 CEV

If you are like me, it is easier to pray when you feel burdened with a need. And today, headlines shout about of a world in turmoil. Such chaos, of course, is of no surprise to God. But situations of civil unrest, natural disasters and economic crises across the globe are creating a huge reservoir of need from which we can unite and pray. We can pray for those who hurt. And we can pray that in the ache, many more people will entrust their souls to God.

As we look to bring the gospel we can expect to encounter resistance. But in response to confusion, concern or spiritual opposition, we bring praise and petitions to a God who is greater, stronger and able to overcome.

Paul’s question in Romans 8:31 was the passionate conclusion to an amazing description of who we are in the Spirit and the realities of following Jesus in this world. God is for us. That single fact defeats any and every foe against us. ~ Steve Douglass
