Today is the national day of prayer. It was a beautiful day here for such a gathering that many like minded citizens all over our country did. I was asked to lead a prayer on behalf of the youth and families. It was a joy and an honor to do so. So, what is a prayer to you?
Is it a joy or a burden? Is it communication or confusion? Is it real or just routine? Is prayer powerful and persuasive or just merely passive? Is it time well spent or time wasted? Is prayer a discipline for you or is it just demanding?
Prayer seems to be what you make of it? Isn’t it interesting and wonderful at the same time that God leaves it up to us how often we pray, what we pray for, and even how long. Certainly Jesus spent a lot of time in prayer, and do you suppose he was as busy or busier than you are?
His closest disciples fell asleep on him when he was praying. Do you fall asleep when you pray, or better yet, when others do? What’s your view of prayer? Are you privileged to pray? God waits for you to decide.
…and that’s what I’m talking about. Love, Rob
