What I am sharing this week comes from Graham Cooke’s book, Beholding and Becoming.
For me it’s difficult to see the pain and suffering that Jesus experienced, but there is precious insight to be revealed in His sorrow and pain.
Graham writes, “Worship is a multifaceted thing , there many different frequencies; Thanksgiving, Adoration, High Praise, Warfare praise, and Lamentations. Lamentations is the most powerful form of worship, but we rarely talk about it. God loves lamentations because it is the only worship that we can do in the absolute reality of where we are. We cannot hide anything in lamentation, and God doesn’t ask us to. In our lives, there are times when our situation is inescapable. A loved one dies; our grief is powerful and absolute. We cannot put our issue and feelings aside.”
What if the prayer I have been praying doesn’t feel like it’s going anywhere?
What if I asked someone else to pray for my request, someone who may have been in this same position and is more aware of God’s interest and involvement?
What if my prayers for someone else gave me hope and faith for my own needs?
What if more than one of us prayed for the same thing, would it have greater effect?
What if I’m not sure that I am praying according to God’s will?
“Fill my cup, Lord; I lift it up, Lord
Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole”
Thirst is an indication that you need water, and one of the symptoms of dehydration. Other symptoms can be dizziness, confusion, and weakness. Of course, the cure is to drink water.
Outreach is a big part of SWC. This is a brief report of the various outreach ministries we were involved in last week.
