Terror, Persecution, and Unity in our diversity

I was thinking about international events, the Berlin terror attack yesterday and church bombings in Egypt last week, in particular, and request that we pray for those that are victims of terrorism and persecuted for their faith.

Also pray for America and Illinois that we might find unity in our diversity, and what do we have to be united on? The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Liberty and Justice for all. E Pluribus Unum: out of many, one.

This is such an important message that transcends so much of what divides us.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
- The Declaration of Independence (1)

"Constitution signer John Dickinson, like many of the others in his day, defined an inalienable right as a right 'which God gave to you and which no inferior power has a right to take away.' Our Founders believed that it was the duty of government to protect inalienable, or God-granted, rights from encroachment or usurpation."
- David Barton, "The Second Amendment", concerning The Bill of Rights (2)

Pray for:
Peace in Illinois, America, and across the world.
Protection from terror in all it's forms.
Comfort and safety for those suffering persecution for their faith.
Unity in our diversity.

An Appeal to Heaven!
Mick Dobra, Chaplain
