There were a multitude of things I brought to prayer this weekend in addition to the sick and suffering. Watching the signs of the times troubles my heart.
1. World Politics--
A. What is really going on with the airspace?
B. How is the World Economic Forum impacting our day-to-day lives?
C. Excess death statistics seem quite troubling around the world.
2. National Politics--
A. The crushing weight of inflation on the poor and the middle class
continues to destroy families.
B. What are the ramifications of the growing distrust that people have of
the government, media outlets, tech companies, and the medical
C. Is there a way to be compassionate and still maintain the security of our
southern border? Do we not owe it to the citizens of the country to slow

people to do our best to combat human trafficking? A wide open border
exacerbates these problems.
3. Train derailment and explosion in Palestine, Ohio--
A. I have not seen much on mainstream media, but social media is labeling
it as a "Chernobyl" event. Is that true?
4. There was apparently a big football game yesterday.
A. Much of society tends to even distrust the legitimate outcome of a
football game. How sad of a commentary is that?
5. Finally, tomorrow is Valentine's Day. Our world could use a day of love.
