Kats’ Korner: Praying for a Better, Safe World

To get nations back on their feet, we must first get down on our knees. —Billy Graham


I have always believed in the power of prayer. I pray each and every day.

I am finding myself on my knees more now than ever in my life.

To see innocent people being killed all over the world just attending an event, going to the mall or being at an airport, is heartbreaking and very frightening. I have always loved small town life. There is a sense of safety in a small town. Everyone knows everyone. I go for walks, never fearing for my life.

I wonder if that will be the case for future generations? Or even true for the rest of my life?

There are groups whom believe in hurting/killing others. This is beyond me. I value my life. I wish I could live forever, watching my grandkids grow into adults and having their own families. I do believe knowing I won’t be here forever makes me value life more.

Now, police officers, those here to protect and serve, are being killed all over the country.

What is wrong with people? If I had the answer to that, I would be rich.

My dad was a police officer. I know how difficult it was for him sometimes. People don’t always like those in blue, wearing a badge and enforcing the law. Probably because they break the law and end up arrested.

That is a police officers job, enforcing the law and arresting those who break it.

They are protecting citizens. I am thankful for them each day. I know I am safe because of police officers.

It is a scary time in this world. I believe in leaving the world a better place than I found it.

The only way I can do that is to be on my knees, praying, each and every day.

Please do the same.

God will provide the answer.

    I too, find myself praying every day.  I don’t pray on my knees that often.  It is great to hear that you will go down for people you don’t even know.
