In 2 Timothy chapter 3, the Apostle Paul says these words: “But know this, that in the last days, perilous times will come.” He describes society as unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, and despisers of those that are good.
For people who need a visual of what these soon coming days will look like, one need look no farther than the recent disgraceful display in our own house of Congress. It’s inconceivable that those who purport to represent us would shout down and walk out on a moment of silence to remember the victims of the terrorist attack in Orlando, Florida. Though many in Congress have lost any sense of civility, you and I don’t have to. We can observe our own moment of prayer. If we do, God promises to hear, forgive, and bring healing to our nation.
It’s time to pray.
