WHO AM I FOOLING?
“Intercession means raising ourselves up to the point of getting the mind of Christ regarding the person for whom I’m praying.”
– Oswald Chambers
There I was, questioned, judged, sentenced and placed on probation. I was given another chance to do it right.
Remember that elephant and his herd I decided to pray for? Well, I did pray, but with the attitude of if I must. I must but dang, I don’t feel like doing it. On top of which I can’t see that it will do any good.
Yikes! Then why bother? Who am I fooling? Maybe myself and the people I tell I’m praying but I’m not fooling God. In fact I’m sure He shook His head at my self-righteous audacity.
Back on my knees and this time I meant it. Whether that intercessory prayer is for that elephant or the country, a friend or a family member, a cause or a deeply personal wish, it’s a cry from my heart.
And when done, I take a deep breath and add,
Cyber hugs all and many Blessings.
