A Prayer Away

Do we ever feel we can’t do much for the Lord? How wrong that thought is. We can always pray for others. No elaborate words are needed, no physical effort or oodles of time. All is need is a few simple words, sitting in a chair and the ability to send ‘arrow prayers’ to heaven. Or when driving the car or waiting at the school gate. We can be of use where we are not. We can travel the world to be with our needy friends and relatives, but our prayers can place God at their side.

So often we feel we need to be doing and unless our Christian life is filled with activity it doesn’t count. Not so. The private life of unstinting prayer is what God often asks of us. There are no stars for the amount of time spend in prayer, just a God who knows and answers. ‘The kingdom of God is within us.’
