“It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer.” – Matthew 21:13
I am so grateful to work at a ministry where prayer is integrated into our everyday work lives. Who would imagine allowing their employees to pray during work hours? Yet hasn’t it been said that prayer is the greater work?
Last Thursday we gathered together to lift up not just the situations and opportunities facing the ministry here, but also our nation and the body of Christ as a whole. Whether it is joining others across the country in a National Day of Prayer, gathering as a staff to share praises and prayer requests every day at noon, joining impromptu late-night prayer meetings called together for an urgent need, or a solitary walk to watch an early sunrise and pause to thank the One who sent it, it is such a joy to see God’s hand at work in every area of life.
And he walks with me and he talks with me,
And he tells me I am his own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.
“Prayer does not fit us for the greater works; prayer is the greater work.” – Oswald Chambers
