Am I Safe?
May 13th, 2022
So a couple of days ago I was talking to my delivery guy and towards the end of the conversation, he looked me right in the eyes and said, “Hey, would you pray for me? I’m going through some stuff.” I looked right at him. Smiled. Then I said, “You bet, I am sorry you are going through something.” I walked away feeling pretty good that my UPS man had asked me to pray for him, and then it hit me, why didn’t I pray for him right there? All I had to do was pray with him right there and he would have known that I cared.
I wondered why I hadn’t prayed for him on the spot, and then it dawned on me that I hadn’t prayed for someone on the spot in years. Then I heard someone talk about the difference between safety and desire and it was clear that the reason I didn’t pray for my driver, was because it was not safe. A response that I would pray was safe and required no further action, had I prayed right there, something could have happened. I was more concerned about my safety and my schedule then I was his soul.
This week I am making a change. Would you care to join me? I want people to know that I desire a true/life-changing relationship with Christ, and my first step will be to pray for people immediately because I want them to see Christ, I want them to know I care, and I don’t want them to wonder if I really prayed or not.
