Week of Prayer Sunday
Interesting how my intentions of blogging every day on this topic got waylaid by my mother-in-law's unexpected illness and temporary hospitalization. She is recovering nicely back home but it was a reminder of how uncertain life can be.
It is not time to start praying when trouble strikes. Better to be in an ongoing pattern of prayer. Prayed up - as they used to say.
So in my final installment for the week let me ask a few simple questions.
Do you have a TIME each day or at least most days when you usually pray?
Do you have a PLACE where you can get quiet and centered on God?
Do you have a PATTERN you like to use to help you focus your prayers?
Those are the basics. They really aren't rocket science and they really aren't negotiable either.
