We were recently able to spend some time with friends on a mini-vacation. On the way home, we were detoured because of a big accident. Then, we found out about another accident on an alternate route home. As we were about to pull into our street, another accident hindered our entrance, making us go down another street in our neighborhood. Instead of getting back home within a decent timespan, we got home hours later than expected.
But here’s the thing. It’s only a detour. All of the people involved in these accidents probably would do anything to be in our shoes; safe with just a slight inconvenience. I’m alive, right? I’m healthy. I have Jesus. So why are so many people discontent with being patient and thankful that they’re alive? After all, it could be you in that accident. The tour isn’t bothering me that bad. What bothers me is all of those accidents. I praise God that I’m not in it. But, I pray for those who were involved.
If you’re reading this right now, I ask that you join me in prayer for any car accidents that happened today, that will happen tomorrow, and the victims of past accidents who are in critical condition. Pray for God’s peace and protection for those affected. Pray for everyone to be safe while they drive.
