Mark 11:24 KJV “Therefore I say unto you, What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
When is the last time you spent any time praying? Was it saying grace over your meal? Or, was it the last time there was an issue that was getting to you? Maybe, something tragic happened and you found yourself spending a lot of time praying and asking the Lord to intervene.
What about that period of time in between life’s drama? Do you spend time in prayer every day? Often we find ourselves in the midst of a drama that is either brought on by our own doing or, getting caught up in someone else’s drama.
I was in a convenience store recently picking up a copy of the Greensburg Daily News (Yes, I actually buy and read the paper often) when this young woman walked into the store and asked for a package of cigarettes. The clerk advised the young woman that she needed to see her ID. The young lady responded by explaining how she had been in before and bought the cigarettes but, the clerk was adamant about the ID, and rightly so. The young lady indicated that she was barefooted and will need to go out to get her ID.
Well, the clerk held her ground and sure enough the young woman was barefooted and, I was good, I didn’t say a word. I was tempted to say something like, “Has anyone shared with you that this is the middle of Winter and it’s 20 degrees out there?”But, I was good and I was struck with the thought that, I imagine this young woman has more drama going on her life than I care to think about.
