Upon visiting In Progress today, I had the privilege of praying for several people I did not know. I had already spent some time in prayer and in the book of Romans, but the day and it’s to-do list was still hanging over me. The time spent praying for these folks refreshed me. This encouragement to pray is one of the many things I enjoy about the church we get to attend. The church supports numerous missionaries all over the world, and several times a week, I get an opportunity to pray for someone I don’t know through an e-mail from our Sunday school class, the Sunday bulletin, or the daily prayer calendar the church puts out. These times of prayer where I often have no way of knowing the results remind me of our utter dependence upon God. For that, I am blessed.
