Wanting, Seeking, Asking — for God’s Help

A detail from Creation by Michelangelo: Adam and God

A detail from Creation by Michelangelo: Adam and God

Good Day, God!

Oh, Michelangelo really nailed it in this painting! In this detail, You are reaching out “purposefully” —  intent on making the Connection and giving Adam Life!

Adam, on the other hand, seems almost indifferent. I mean, his hand is out, but it looks limp and listless. Dang! Most of the time that’s me.

You long to help and to heal. And, mostly I’m busy doing something else or maybe just goofing off.

But for the last few weeks I have been part of a group of four friends  praying in a highly focused “Season of Prayer.” I’ve taken to phoning the “requesting” person every day to pray. It’s a fantastic experience!  And, as You seem to delight in Mutual Blessings, I’m becoming more and more aware of my need for healing in so many areas. I’m beginning to ask for myself, too!

Over the years I’ve prayed with friends fairly often — but there is something qualitatively different about this four-person focused prayer. It’s funny. For years, the four of us have met to celebrate our birthdays. Now  we’re humming along on a different plane! It’s like You had given us a powerful Ferrari but we kept it in the garage and only rolled it out 4 or 5 times a year to sit in it.

I wish, God, that EVERYONE had Prayer Friends to join with in Focused Prayer!
