This Sunday I will be wrapping up a series on the "one another" passages. The final one is "pray for one another."
I am so humbled when I preach on prayer. I feel somewhat hypocritical, since I have a long way to go on the spiritual disciplines. I want a deeper, more intimate prayer life. But apparently not enough to make the sacrifices necessary to have one. I love moments when I sit in silence before God -- but I don't do it much. I have prayer time every day several times. But there is a depth that is, more often than not, missing. I'm tired of the shallow and the routine.
Hmm. Sounds like a good New Year's resolution. At this point, I could even get a two-month running start.
By the way, I can't stand when people say, "Prayer works." Prayer doesn't work. God works.
Am I being nitpicky? Don't tell me if I am. Just talk behind my back about it:)
