Thy Kingdom Come - Reflection 6
Make your life a prayer
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone. (1 Timothy 2.1)
What then should we pray for?
Paul sets the bar of expectation very high. We should pray for everyone. We should pray all the time.
I see it this way. Make your life a prayer. Make your life an offering. Ask God that your life and your prayers, your words and your actions, might make a difference in the world. To follow in the way of Jesus means living a Jesus shaped life, so that all the good things that we see in him can also be seen in us, at least in part.
In this way our following Jesus is more than attending services, or even believing certain things. It is a way of life. A way that makes a difference for us and for the world.
Transforming God, make me more like Jesus. And because I know my life is not like that, show me Jesus today. And change my prayer from asking things for myself, to asking you what you would like for me so that my life can be part of your story. And help me to pray for others, that they may know Christ for themselves.
