Lord, our most High God; Today, I got up feeling worried More than ever; Many things worry me; Insecurity is growing; No one is sure Of what comes next; I commit this day to you As I do other days; Lord, take full control; Protect your children, Pave the way for peace And security; And make our landing Successful; So that more glory will come To your holy name, Amen!
You may think What I am going to tell you Is a joking matter; Not at all; It’s no joking matter When everybody is scared; It’s no joking matter When everybody is complaining So much of insecurity; It’s no joking matter When people are sleeping With all eyes open Because they don’t know What may happen; It’s no joking matter When unscrupulous individuals Armed to the teeth Break into homes at will And harrass peaceful citizens; It’s no joking matter When you get a message At midnight From an unidentified gunman, Telling you he’s coming; That you should wait; And see his colours When he comes; With all honesty, It’s no joking matter. Security is not a thing To toy with.
This is a message to a sweetheart who has not come home and it’s already so late during very precarious times.
I’m really worried;
‘Cause you’re not home yet;
Why so much delay?
Worries and fears
About your safety flood
You know the times we live;
Nothing is sure;
Insecurity so high;
That’s what keeps me so worried,
Send me word;
To give my troubled heart
What it needs: peace.
Help me O Lord, Don’t leave me stranded; You know what I need At this moment, My needs are many: So too are my fears And worries; Insecurity is supreme; And on you alone Do I depend; You alone can save me; Thus, to you I turn; Hear and answer me; Almighty God,our father. Amen.
Where we are now, We cannot help ourselves: We are helpless; The situation is critical; We know no peace; Danger looms in the air; Our security is at stake. We are desperate; Anything can happen; The worst is possible; Death smells in the air; God alone can save us; If God abandons us, too bad; We are finished; We cannot survive; But we trust in God; We trust He will not abandon us; We trust He is with us; He has promised to save us When danger shows its ugly head; Surely, that, he will do. He will save us. He alone can save us.
The world seems to have become more unsafe than ever. Why is this so? What are some of the causes of the instability the world is going through? Can the world ever become peaceful and safe for everybody? What must be done to achieve this?
Why are we killing ourselves?
Why are we killing others?
Why are others killing us?
What type of hearts do we have?
Are they stone hearts or human hearts?
How do we feel when we kill another
Human being like us?
Why have we built barriers among us?
Why is geography separating us?
Why is religion making us kill?
Is a human being not a human being?
Why are some people making the world
Such a hell for others?
Why are some people forcing others
To live in permanent fear and uncertainty;
Why? Who can tell me why?
How can I hold my tears when I think that
Somewhere in the world at this moment
Someone is dying innocently in the hands
Of evil men?
Why are we killing?
Why are we killing others?
Why so much wickedness?
