Finger Print Friday

This might seem like a strange choice of image for todays post, but for me, God's  finger print is evident in this example of graffiti scrawled on a wall in London in anticipation of the world wide media attention the city would experience this week as it hosted the G20 Summit.
I am  fortunate enough to live in a country where freedom of speech is a basic human right. There were countless protests in the streets, most of them peaceful, some not so. But the tolerance shown to all the differing factions is, for me, living proof of  God's hand, working through us.

 The  G20 group is made up of financial ministers and central bank governors and leaders from the 20 largest economies of the world.
President Obama hailed the summit as  "...an historic turning point in the pursuit of world economic recovey".
Prime Minister Brown stated that "...global problems required global solutions".
So today my Finger Print Friday is also a prayer that the finger print of God is felt on the hearts of all these world leaders and that through them all  peoples of the world benefit from financial recovery not just those of us fortunate enough to live in wealthy countries.

God knows every single thing going on, from grass growing to world leaders' plans. Nothing happens without His knowing. Thank you for that reminder!

It's encouraging to see so many countries come together in a collaborative effort in these troubled times. A great reminder to keep praying not just for our own country but for our world.
