Standing watch in thought

In a community where violence, hatred, fear, and apathy appeared prevalent in thought, there abode beneath that angry realm of conversation and action a quiet—a watchful atmosphere of Christly love. This selfless, vigilant love was exercised daily by a few through their prayers to God for the men, women, and children in their small town. Their prayers brought healing to this community.

Was this the story of Nehemiah, or Lot, or Daniel? Or did it take place in one of the towns where Jesus walked? It could have, but no—it was a community in the United States. Some residents there recognized that we can learn from these Bible stories exactly what we need to be doing today, right now, to bring healing and protection to our schools, churches, malls, movie theaters, street corners, and homes everywhere.
