Our hearts have been broken by the senseless death of our brother in Christ, George Floyd, and the aftermath of rioting and destruction around our country.
In THIS time of unrest let us all be praying for Mr. Floyd’s family and those who feel disenfranchised, discouraged and helpless in the face of injustice and violence. Let us also pray that the hearts of people in this country and around the world turn back to God, through His Son Jesus in genuine repentance and find a new faith and life in Him. God’s kingdom is not about hate or destruction. It is about forgiveness and fellowship with Him and each other, both in this life and in the life to come.
In its 113-year history Star of Hope has withstood the chaos of the world around us – pandemics; wars; political, economic and racial strife; natural disasters — because it has stood and continues to stand firmly on the Gospel of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Thanks to you and others like you, we are a Christ-centered community dedicated to meeting the needs of homeless men, women and their children who come seeking hope. We are one community … one body in Christ … coming together to serve others and glorify God.
Let us pray together: “Father, we live in this world, but for all of us who have accepted your eternal salvation through your Son Jesus … help us yield not to the temptation of sin and hatred, but deliver us from the evil all around us this day. Deliver our communities … our city … our state and our country which we love so dearly. Bring comfort as only you can, to those who suffer in loss and fear today … is our pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
