Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
We all know that prayer is the foundation for our lives and it is the foundation for everything we do here in ministry. As I was praying today, I was petitioning God for an answer to a situation in my life. I finished, packed up my Bible and moved on to the next task I had to do for the day. Then it occurred to me – although I had asked God for an answer, I didn’t wait to hear what it might be! I know God can talk to us at any time and the answer might not be immediate but today I asked the question and then ‘got on’ with my day. Imagine if someone did that to us – asked us a question and then turned around and walked off without waiting for the answer. We could feel quite offended or at the very least wonder why they even bothered asking.
So back to prayer it was and (after saying sorry!) as I waited, a picture began to emerge which I will continue to pray into. That can be one of the problems of our busy lives – we don’t treat God with the respect and reverence He deserves. We need to make time to spend in prayer so we can talk with Him each and everyday. It is the solid foundation we must base our whole life on.
With love & blessings, Sandra
