What are you praying about these days?
Stop for a moment and think about this. What are you praying for? What is on your heart? What is God saying to you? What are you hearing from Creation? What is crying out to you to be heard? To be attended to?
Prayer is more about listening than talking.
Slow your breathing. Stop. And listen. The Spirit of wisdom and truth cannot be heard in the din of the too-busyness of life. This is why Jesus went away to a quiet place every once in awhile. So he could hear. So he could trust that what he was hearing was the voice and the presence of the one he knew as God of all creation.
What is God saying to you? How is the Spirit inviting you to be engaged in the life of the world? The big world - the big picture. Not just the details that clutter our days.
What does your community need from you? What does your church need from you? What does the world need from you?
We are the church. The church is the "Body of Christ". We are more than just keepers of a building. We are "the hands and feet of Christ", called to serve God in the world.
Blessings on your Lenten journey.
See you Sunday for worship and communion.
