Prayerful waiting

We are still waiting to find out the title of the next chapter of our lives.  In just over a month, my five-year ministry at Rhea County Academy will be concluded.  Many of you have inquired about what is next.  Thank you!  Some of you are also praying regularly for us.  Thank you!  We covet your continued prayers.  However, our responsibility for praying remains in effect.  I was reminded of that as I studied Acts, chapter one this week.  While the post-resurrection disciples waited for the arrival of the Holy Spirit, they were devoted to prayer (1:14).  In other words, they were engaged in prayerful waiting.  Their example was surely in Paul’s mind as he commanded the Christians in Asia Minor:

“Devote yourselves to prayer” (Col. 4:2).

“Pray continually” (1 Thess. 5:17).

If any activity marks a genuine believer, it is prayer.  Christians are people who pray–pray frequently, passionately, and purposefully.  And–our praying continues, whether we find ourselves in “GO”–“STOP”–or–“YIELD” mode.  We’re in “YIELD” (wait) mode currently.

What about you?

We’re praying–A LOT.

What about you?
