We mentioned in our last post “A Call To Pray” that we would put out a couple of updates before the 25th and 26th August to encourage and help us focus on what Jesus wants for this time. After all, it is about what He wants.
We are all aware of the Olympics at the moment and the preparation that each athlete puts in to their training before the actual event. This preparation is vital if they are to function at their best during the event. No less so are we to prepare our hearts and minds towards this time we have set aside to pray.
HOW DO WE PREPARE?
We read that Jesus came aside to be with his Father often. He moved away from the clamour, noise and distractions of life to be alone and in doing so set an example for us to follow.
Frank Laubach reports, “Oh, this thing of keeping in constant touch with God, of making him the object of my thought and the companion of my conversations, is the most amazing thing I ever ran across.”
That seems to be the best way to prepare for the last weekend in August.
