Use Sacred Scripture to Pray…

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
For Birth and death, We thank You, God!
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
For the Cycle of Life, We thank You, God!
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
For those who risk their lives and for those who must heal from trauma, We thank You, Oh Lord, for those who serve!
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
For those who rebuild and those who take down, For them, we thank You, Oh, Lord! 
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
For the times we are given to cry and to laugh, We thank You, God!
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
For the Times that we mourn and the times that we dance, We thank You, Oh, Lord!
 a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
For when we must work for our keep, We thank You, Oh, Lord!
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
For the times we have held others close and the times we have held back, We thank You, Oh, Lord!
 a time to seek, and a time to lose;
For the times we have lost and the times we have searched, We thank You, Oh, Lord!
a time to keep, and a time to throw away;
For what we have and for what we have thrown, We thank You, Oh, God!
 a time to tear, and a time to sew;
For the times that we must patch and the times that we have torn, We thank You, Oh, God!
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
For the times we must speak and the times we are silent, We thank You, Oh, Lord!
a time to love, and a time to hate;
For the times we have loved and the times that we don’t, We Thank You, Oh, Lord!
a time for war, and a time for peace.
For the times of wars and a return to peace, We thank You, Oh, Lord!

When God is in control, the world is in order. When we become gods, the world is out of control. Step back. Be thankful. Praise God for His Goodness. Implore His mercy. For God is good and kind and just.
His Mercy endures forever!
