Praying In the Moment

interlocking-hands-769472_640

“I’ll pray for you…”  This is an often-used phrase, but how often do you actually fulfill this promise?  I know that some of you are very good at actually doing this, but I want to acknowledge how hard it is.  It can be so easy to make this promise, with great intentions, but then lose momentum in the busyness of life.  We get distracted and forget our original promise.

So, here is a challenge for you.  Try praying on the spot.  Make it short and quick, no more than a sentence or two.  Lift up a prayer for the concern that someone has lifted.

This lets others know, not only that you care, but that you really mean what you say.  Most people (even those who are not connected to any church) really appreciate being prayed for in the moment.  I know that this is a challenge.  It isn’t easy to pray out loud, but I also believe that it makes a meaningful difference to others who receive the prayer.  So, let us challenge ourselves to pray for people in their moment of need.

Looking for Prayer Volunteers
If you are interested in helping to build the prayer ministry of our church by praying during the worship service, please contact Pastor Becky.  I would love to have a team that would pray for our church and worship during this time.  You can email me at rwilliams@offumc.org.

Blessings,
Pastor Becky Williams
