As we join for prayer today, we know that our American culture is divided. Our country is being torn apart by arguments and outright conflict. Things change as fast as the 24-hour news updates. Questions about right or wrong are very complicated — but of course, we who follow Christ have to think and reflect deeply as we seek to follow the Lord’s will. We need to understand current issues as well as the Bible’s teachings.
Today we are going to pray for a man named Casey Hough because his work helps Baptists understand the ethical issues we face these days. Casey is a Baptist pastor in Houston, Texas. But he also serves with the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. Baptists established this commission years ago to help Baptists deal effectively with complex issues. Casey does research that helps the commission have the information and background it needs to arrive at Bible-based responses to questions we face.
We could call Casey a missionary for truth. And, like the thousands of other missionaries our church supports, we support him through our Cooperative Program giving.
Let’s pray now for Casey and the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission
