I had another post scheduled for today, but I chose to put it on hold. Last night I received some bad news about a dear friend who went to the ER. He is in critical condition.
The Scripture “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17), always stumps me until I’m faced with situations like this. On normal days, I cannot fathom praying continually without stopping. When bad news hits, all of a sudden it seems like a reasonable request. I found my thoughts with him all last night. Even after going to bed, I woke up almost every hour and every time offered up a quick prayer. I dreamed about him and the situation.
Prayer is a form of worship. So this morning, my worship is my plea for healing, strength, and His miracles.
Thanks for letting me share, and if you feel inclined, please say a prayer for Daniel.
