This summer, our staff team has decided to meet up Monday through Thursday to pray for an hour each of those days. Now, an hour doesn’t seem like a ton of time in the grand scheme of things, but if you don’t find yourself in the habit of this type of rhythm, it can take a little bit of time to adjust to it. As Jim says on occasion, we’re “doing the work of prayer.”
I’ve also been taking the time to read through Psalms this summer in addition to our OT reading plan that Sweet Robbie came up with. I really like Psalms. It’s been some time since I just read straight through them, but I’ve been reminded of how great they are as this summer has progressed. There are a lot of great things about them, but what I like the most is that they’re real – they’re real words, expressed by real people, on how they really feel. Now, I don’t mean that in the way that they could be fake, but that the Psalms are people expressing raw emotion. Emotions resulting from being happy, sad, excited, doubtful, hopeful, etc.
These two things, Prayer and Psalms, have helped bring me back to a place of being both reflective on what God has done, and in being hopeful in what he is going to do.
As we continue throughout the summer, we want to know how we can pray for you. If there is something in particular we can be praying for you about, please let us know in either the comment section of this post or by leaving a comment on the FB post. If you’d rather not let the world know in that way, just shoot us a message via Facebook or by e-mailing us. We want to know how we can be praying for you!
