self

Prayer is more than reminding God of our needs, more than crying about the problems in our life, more than aching about the hurts, the pain, the sickness. Prayer is about joining God in His incredible work on this planet. So many times we run to Him with our problems, and they are completely valid, but He wants more than that. He wants us to look outside our circumstances, look outside our self, look outside to the world around, to the joy and the pain, to the broken and the resurrected, to the poverty and the blessing. Prayer is more than a wish list, it is a joining together with the Father and desiring to see that life is bigger than our immediate surroundings. Sometimes these things are overwhelming and we do not see that our meagerness makes a difference, but God only needs a mustard seed to make amazing life happen.  http://john13verse34.blogspot.com/2012/03/lent-2-thursday-mustard-seed.html
