May We Pray

Today, you’ve been given a great gift, and a great responsiblity.

Today, in every moment of your day, you have the chance to make a difference. Today, for you, if you use it wisely, there will be no wasted moments.  Today, there will be not idle times.

Today, you can truly impact everyone that you talk to, that you see, that you pass by.

Today, you can make a huge difference in the lives of so many people.

How?  How can you do this? Through prayer.

Today, you can impact so many through prayer.  Listen to what Paul writes in 1 Timothy:

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.

Pray for all people.  That guy that passed you in the hall that you don’t like?  Pray for him.

That lady that cut you off in traffic today?  Pray for her.

That person that was disrespectful and rude? Pray for them.

Who knows what could be going on their lives?  Who knows what troubles they may be facing. Who knows what trials they may be going through?   They could be in the most dire need of prayer.

And that’s our job. As Christians we are called to pray. Pray at work. Pray at school.  Pray in our families. Pray as we travel. Pray as we walk.  Pray.

Today, you have the chance to make an amazing difference in everyone that you meet.  Today, pray.

That is God’s calling for you today. And that is your gift you give to everyone that you come into contact with.

Today, may we pray.
