Any fair assessment of the news reports today would demonstrate we are globally in a mess. It seems we are being threatened on every side of life – with voices all around saying: “ We are leading to an economic meltdown either through inflation or deflation!” “Our businesses are threatened with an increase in cyber attacks for which there is no shield”; “Our personal information has been stolen”; “Our cities are unsafe from the influx of drugs and human traffic”; “Now, threats of rampant disease”; “Earthquakes are happening in unexpected places with unusual frequency!”; “Natural disasters are overtaxing our resources”; “Another credible global terrorist threat?” Where is the safety in the midst of this turbulence?

(Philippians 4:6) -- 'Let us endeavor to discover how prayer, in its scope, covers the personal, social, material, natural, spiritual, ecclesiastical, and national realms. The words “nothing” and “every thing” are absolutely all-embracing and all-inclusive in their scope (cf. Matt 21:22; John 14:14). Beyond these realms we cannot go. Prayers are related to all that we can see in the world around us.' —Herbert Lockyer
