I have a desire, most of which is wholesome to keep-up-to-date with the news. My habit, for better or worse, is to go to the BBC website for this.
I have recently pondered upon how much I just obtain news information for information and/or entertainment. There is nothing essentially harmful in that. However, I am left wondering about the issue of actually praying the news. Would it not be far more wholesome to use my acquired news information to pray to the Lord about those items. To pray:
- For people in need.
- For crisis situations around the world.
- For the extension of the gospel in different parts of the world.
- For many to be converted to the Lord in these situations mentioned in the news.
And as we pray we can weep and rejoice over the situations we observe.
I am going to seek to do this. I trust it will revolutionise my approach to the news and make following the news it a far more beneficial activity.
