#724 - Involved in Local Community
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, I let my young children play on a major highway. As cars speed by them going sixty miles per hour, my children try to kick the ball back and forth. It would be beyond horrific of my character if this were true. I would be the worst parent of all time. However, I do let my children sleep, eat, play, and go to school in my local community without having any idea of what's going on in the community. I'm not involved in local politics, schools, or crime prevention. I'm burying my head in the sand, parenting with a blindfold on. There could be gangs moving in to the neighborhood where my children walk home from school and I don't know anything about it. Father, not being involved as a parent with what is going on in the local community is as dangerous to my children as allowing them to play on the highway. Father, help me to confess and repent of my rebellion from You. Help me to surrender my life to You. Give to me the Holy Spirit so that He might transform my heart and soul. Then, help me to become a leader in my community. - Help me to pray in person with the politicians, town managers, and the mayor. - Help me to pray for the members of the town council and school board. - Help me to attend meetings and to offer valuable wisdom that You use to lead decision makers to build a godlier community. - Help me to write letters to the editor, giving my neighbors a vision for a better community. - Help me to get involved with major events and projects in the community. - Help me to be involved in long-term planning. - Help me to get to know the local journalists and help me to share Your plan for a strong community. Father, by getting involved, I will learn the things I need to know to protect my family each day. Help me now to get involved in my local community. Amen.
