Start Working

This morning, like last evening, is dark and cold. If I were a caribou, polar bear or snow monkey I would be thrilled with the current weather conditions. But I am a human being, a very cold, wishing-for-summer human being.

As I snuggle more deeply under the covers of my warm bed I think that the bears have learned how best to cope with the cold. Sleep through it. But I can’t sleep through my days. There is work to do. I don’t mean my job or the laundry or the dishes. I mean the critical work of prayer must be done. People are suffering, and we need to bring them to God in prayer.

This world has some very cold, harsh moments, and those people hit by those moments need prayer warriors to rise each morning and pray. If God has graciously given you a vibrant prayer life, let nothing stop you from going before Him. We need to pray for our friends, family and strangers. We need God to show us for whom and what we are to pray. We must pray so that the suffering of others is lifted and they can find faith, hope and love in God.

It may be cold outside, but get up and get to your job of prayer. Someone’s day depends on it.
