Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

could we be those shepherds?

A few weeks ago, some teens and young adults got together for a night of worship and testimony. Tina Colon sang a song that night... a song that I would like to make our prayer for this Monday.

Look at the poverty in this city--how could we let it get so bad?
While they dig through trash cans for their dinner, I walk right by.
Kids will be sleeping on the subway floors tonight.

Look at the brokenness in this city, outstretched hands begging for change.
I ask, 'am I my brother's keeper?' I don't know...
But if we don't keep, then won't they be left alone?

Where are the shepherds, where are the shepherds? you ask.
Many are scattered, who will gather?
Many are sick, many are weary, many are wandering.
Where are the shepherds, where are the shepherds? you ask.

He knows the violence in this city. Just out of jail, only 14.
He steals from the rich to buy some drugs to dull his pain.
But for his delinquency he's not the only one to blame.
See when he was younger, his father would hurt him
Until he ran away from home.
out in the cold, only the streets would take him in.
And out on the streets, they'd teach him he needs violence to live.

Where are the shepherds, where are the shepherds? you ask.
Many are scattered, who will gather?
Many are sick, many are weary, many are wandering.
Where are the shepherds, where are the shepherds? you ask.

But you will search for the ones we've forgotten, you will rescue.
you will bring them into their own land where they will feed.
And we will join you, we'll bind up the injured and strengthen the weak.
'Cuz we are the shepherds, we are the shepherds you seek.

So where are the shepherds, where are the shepherds? you ask
My sheep are still scattered, it's time to gather...
To heal the sick, comfort the weary, walk with the wandering.
Could we be those shepherds, be the shepherds we need?

Peace,

Amen
