Good Morning, God!
Here I am — at home — not going anywhere. Thank YOU, God! Even busy little extroverts need down time. Actually, what I need is to sit silently in Your Lap. And I did go and do that for maybe a whole minute. But, You sent me back into the World of Interconnections!
I am SO THANKFUL, God, for That World, That Web of Connections — for Life.
I was thinking of the number of people I can call to pray with — pray OUT LOUD with — that is such a gift. The Spire at Central Union used to be visible way out to sea. It was a visible reminder of Your Call.
The phone has made it possible to connect across space — and we can call now for almost nothing. We can call to pray — call to talk and to hear — to confirm our existence and value as human beings . . . or just beings.
In my heart there is a yearning for everyone to have “prayer connections” — people that they can CALL on for prayer or just a listening ear. We need that, God. I know I need it. Trustworthy people who will hear and join us in CALLING YOU.
There is a reason that Jesus said “where two or three are in my name I am there.” C.S.Lewis said that two Christians are ten times more than one Christian. We are designed to pray together!
But, we are not taught that — not told that — not helped to do that. Hmmm. I wonder if ANYONE would come to a session on Praying Together? Or just come to our Wednesday 7:00 a.m. Women’s Prayer and Laughter Group? Yes, God, we need to ASK!
