The attacks in Kenya and Paris two weeks ago bothered me like nothing had in a while. So much so, I cried most of the weekend at the senseless crimes. Since then, more people have died from bombings, shootings, and other methodologies of destroying human life. We all have the understanding things cannot continue as they are. Everyone, believer or not knows this on an instinctual and spiritual level.
Yesterday, I had my first ever Write Stuff Prayercast. It was something I’d been nervous to do but the Lord blessed it according to His will. I wasn’t sure how people would respond, if people would join us, if they would listen, or even care. I was humbled by the number of people who came on board and sent over their requests for prayer. I was surprised at how well things worked out. And I was greatly humbled how God chose me to do something like this.
Prayer is the order of the day. My guest during the prayercast made the point that prayer is communicating with God. It’s direct communication with Him. There’s a lot of comfort in knowing the Creator of everything can and will hear our prayers.
I invite you to listen to the prayercast at this link: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/wluv103/2015/11/25/write-stuff-prayercast–11242015 and consider some of the things we talked about: what is prayer, how to pray, what kind of expectations we should have about prayer, and most importantly, praising God while we pray.
I leave you with this verse: 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
