Being a Christian Is so Cool

For the past couple of months I have been reading a devotional on prayer. Jesus gave us a model on how we should pray and so I have been using “The Lord’s Prayer” as a guide for my daily prayer time. The devotional booklet I used talked about the importance of the section where he says “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Over the past few weeks I have made a concerted effort to pray for God’s kingdom and for my part as a servant of God by asking God to use me for his kingdom. Well, here’s the cool part, it’s happening.

I’ve always known that it has been happening in my life but most of the time I don’t really see how God is using me for his kingdom. Yesterday, a friend called in desperate need of prayer and asked me to pray for him on the phone right then and there. And then today it happened again — while I was out doing errands — another person asked me to pray for her right then and there. I think that is so cool! I don’t think my prayers are any more special than anyone else’s but I am excited when someone asks me to pray for them — right then and there — because I know that God created us to serve each other as we serve him.

    Isn’t it great how God prepares us when he is going to use us? But sometimes I wonder if it isn’t the other way around: Him using us because we’re (finally) prepared.

    Very encouraging, thanks!
