Feb. 5, 2019 - Prayer Tip

C. S. Lewis said, "...prayer doesn't change God, it changes me."

If we want to see what God sees, if we want our vision for the future to match God's vision and experience the joy and excitement of living in the middle of God's plan for us, then we have to invite God into the picture, to change us. That's what daily prayer does—it invites God in to make changes and turn our vision into God's vision. It takes time, just like walks with my dachshund, and focused attention to change the way we see the world around us.

This week, as we explore God's vision for our church, let's make a commitment to spending that focused time every single day in prayer, asking to see our church, our community and the world around us the way God sees them—the needs, the opportunities and the plans God has for us. There are so many things to see!

Bless us Lord, this day with vision. May this place be a sacred place, a telling place, where heaven and earth meet.
