February 23, 2006



Jesus commended perseverence in prayer,and I think James was actually writing to our generation! We live in a instant gratification society - fast food and intenet - and are in grave danger of learning how to press in in prayer.

We don't have because we don't ask (or ask with wrong motives) still applies - but also the fact that if we don't get the answer we want instantly - like a scratch card - we give up.

I think that's something God is impressing on me for lent this year: To pray for His church and the leaders (in an ecumenical sense, not only my particular brand if you see what I mean -

Jesus' prayer was that we would be one as He and the Father are one. It's important or He wouldn't have prayed it.
