6.15.17 Prayer Prompt: Looking for Love

PRAYER PROMPT ••• The most popular hashtag on Instagram is #love. 

With #love representing 1,085,986,510 posts as I write this (that’s Billon. With a B), it’s clear our world is looking for love. 

But look at our news headlines yesterday. 

Two shootings. 

Then consider the events that didn’t make national news. 

Murder. 

Theft. 

Rape. 

Rampant in our communities. 

For a world desperate for love, we sure live in a lot of hate. 

Let’s talk about hashtags again… 

#God totals 23,684,598. 

#Jesus totals 16,004,648. 

#HolySpirit totals 1,321,698. 

Our hashtag inventory is seriously out of whack. 

As a general rule, I try not to draw assumptions, but if over a billion people are looking for love, yet God only gets 23 million mentions, it seems the world is looking for love in all the wrong places. 

#John316, one of the most well-known verses in the Bible is hashtagged 105,241 times. 

Maybe if this number multiplied 10,000 times or so, we’d see a world who not only craved love, but loved it too. 

Because the truth is, God IS love. 

The very definition of it. 

If you landed on his post because you were in search of #love, please read not only John 3:16, but 1 John 4:8, “Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.” 

There is a true love waiting to be accepted. 

Today, as you pray, ask God to make you a light of His love. 

Ask Him to help you boldly share it with those who are in desperate need for it.

NOTE: Feel free to comment, but these prayer prompts are meant to be between you and God. Matthew 6:6 — But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
