Billy Graham famously prayed through the newspaper. This is a practice that re-narrates the world’s events in light of God’s kingdom and the fundamental news that love wins. Today pray through the news whether its online, on paper, or on the screen. Don’t pray for any outcome other than that God’s kingdom will come in its fullness in each life and story.
