Last week, I prayed in church for the world situation and the impending war against Iraq. I really didn’t know how to pray. I wouldn’t presume to tell God which position he should take, so I just prayed, “Lord, your will be done.” Someone stopped me after and told me how much she appreciated the prayer. It’s so easy to ignore the situation if you’re not sure what to think or believe. It’s even easier to take sides, and presume to know the mind of God on the situation. I am part of the leadership team of a church, and sometimes we can’t agree on how to handle relatively trivial decisions. I’m so glad I’m not responsible for deciding how to handle Saddam Hussein. It’s pretty easy to sit at a computer and spew opinions. It’s another thing entirely to hold a position of power in which anything you do has unimaginable consequences. We agree on many things. No matter what position we take, let’s agree to pray (which arguably led to the collapse of the Iron Curtain), and to look for justice for the people of Iraq – to hear Iraqis’ cries.
