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

Abba, Father


When we live in a spirit of slavery and fear, we cry, “Abba, Father!”
When we live by the power of death, we cry, “Abba, Father!”
When your church has lost its way, we cry, “Abba, Father!”
When we’ve forgotten your truth, we cry, “Abba, Father!”
When we model ourselves after the world, we cry, “Abba, Father!”
Where men and women and children are for sale we cry, “Abba, Father!”
When human life is cheap we cry, “Abba, Father!”
Where people are desperate and violent, we cry,  “Abba, Father!”
Where we see with eyes of mistrust and hate, we cry,  “Abba, Father!”
Where families are torn apart, we cry, “Abba, Father!”
Where cities are in distress, we cry, “Abba, Father!”
Where those in power abuse the needy, we cry,  “Abba, Father!”
Where food is withheld from the hungry, we cry,  “Abba, Father!”
Where we have destroyed the beauty of your creation, we cry, “Abba, Father!”
In every way we are small, afraid, broken, alone, and desperate, we cry, “Abba, Father!”
Let your Spirit testify to our spirits that we are your children.
Amen
From Mandy Smith, Missio Alliance
