For the world

The world at present is in quite a state. People all around the world are really struggling to live – there are many struggling to make ends meet, to feed their families, to keep a roof over their head – the basic necessities of life to survive. Sadly this is happening to those round about us, it’s not a land far away that we can only imagine what their life circumstances are like.

The song ‘Prayers for this world’ by Pentatonic really hit home with me, as it talks about the mess this world is in, and how it ‘feels like it might take a miracle to make it out alive’. Thankfully this Christmas we can offer that hope that so many need, by sharing the good news of the baby Jesus, and how God sent Jesus to earth to show the world just how much he loves us.

So rather than just complaining about all that is happening in this world let’s

I'm gonna take a chance
I'm gonna make a change
Give all the love I can
'Cause that's the only way for us-way for us
I'm gonna pray for us-pray for us
These are hard times in these times
Feels like the world's 'bout to capsize
Feels like it might take a miracle
To make it out alive

The clock is tickin'
What do we do?
Is someone listenin'?
Help us through

Prayers for this world
Bring peace to it's doors
Bring hope to it's shores
We've got to change it

Prayers for this world
Bring wind to it's sails
It's gone off the rails
We've got to save it

Raise up our hands and rise together
It's got to be now
It's now or never
Prayеrs for this world
We've got to save us all

Ohh (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh) (oh oh)
Pray for this world
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh) (oh oh)
Prayеrs for this world
(Ohh)

Feels like we're trapped in a landslide
Can't even look at the headlines
'Cause when you look at what's goin' on
You just wanna run and hide

Only light can fight the darkness
Only love can end the hate
We gotta get us some love and light
So love can light the way

The clock is tickin'
Time's runnin' out
Is someone listenin'?
Help us out

Prayers for this world
Bring peace to it's doors
Bring hope to it's shores
We've got to change it

Prayers for this world
Bring wind to it's sails
It's gone off the rails
We've got to save it

Raise up our hands and rise together
It's got to be now
It's now or never
Prayers for this world
We've got to save us all

I'm gonna take a chance
I'm gonna make a change
Give all the love I can
'Cause that's the only way for us-way for us
I'm gonna pray for us-pray for us

Prayers for this world
Bring peace to it's doors
Bring hope to it's shores
We've got to change it

Prayers for this world
Bring wind to it's sails
It's gone off the rails
We've got to save it

Raise up our hands and rise together
It's got to be now
It's now or never
Prayers for this world
We've got to save us all

Pray for this world
(Oh) woo-ooh (oh)
Prayers for this world
