We love to react, analyze and figure out what we are going to do next when something happens. And in a world characterized by division and demonization, our reacting, analyzing and figuring out often can become quite emotional. But the fact of the matter is that God wants more from us. God wants us to pray before we do anything else. Pray for a deeper understanding of what’s going on. Pray for wisdom and compassion. And most of all pray that God’s Will may be done. So the question each one of us must answer is really very simple – Are we willing to pray first?
