You ever wake up in the middle of the night, like someone really needs prayer?
I'm not real sure what happened last night, or why it happened. Maybe I just ate something that didn't agree with my stomach, but I felt an overwhelming sense just to pray.
I spent a long time praying for KIVU.
I prayed for some of the students out here that are struggling with different issues.
I prayed for the family, the Braner bunch.
I prayed for the city.
I don't know, I just kept on praying, searching for whatever it was that woke me up. Almost like the section in Romans 8, when Paul says, "In the same way, the
Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray
for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words
cannot express. And he
who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the
Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will."
What a great time of communion.
But I wonder…
Last night at our 2Deep meeting, the Durango Youth meeting we're a part of, Luke shared from the sermon on the mount. He talked about "Blessed are the Pure in Heart for they shall see God." I sat there thinking, "I want to be pure in heart. I want to see God."
I don't know…Maybe God was waking me up to show me something. I can't wait to look back and see what it is.
In the meantime, I just want to be faithful. Faithful to what He's called me to do. Faithful to pray. Faithful to be led in whatever direction He wants.
