Thoughts and Prayers
August 11, 2019 | Rev. Dr. Catharine Guest
Passage: Acts 12:11-17
Rev. Dr. Catharine Guest preached on Thoughts and Prayers based on scriptures Acts 12:1-10 and Acts 12:11-17.
Thoughts and prayers. Three words we hear more and more often these days in the aftermath of tragedy. Three words that have become so familiar that I have begun hearing the rebuttal angrily spoken - 'We need more than thoughts and prayers!' That rebuttal gives me pause - what do we mean by 'thoughts and prayers'?
Why do those three words make people so angry? What are they looking for? What is God looking for?
