Prayer is God’s great gift to us. Why have we so devalued this great gift by our apathy? A pastor of one of our largest churches shared that in their latest 40 days of prayer initiative the number of people involved in this 10,000 plus member church actually persevering in the 40 day movement was less than 100. Forgive us Lord!
David Platt in Radical, recalls the story of a man who was visiting Seoul, Korea being awakened in his hotel room at 4 am by a loud roar. Peering out his window he could see stadium lights and wondered why anyone would be playing soccer at that time of the night! Later that day he discovered from a hotel staff person that the roar was actually a daybreak prayer meeting not a soccer game!
Good and gracious God, give us a passion to reconnect and reap the potential of a prayer relationship with you and others. Give us a hunger where we thirst more for you than we do your favor or blessings. Restore fire and faith to our lives and to our churches, that we could really be the disciples of Jesus that you intend us to be. In Christ name, Amen. If you are moved, post a prayer here and let’s lay wood to this move of God!
