Connect the Dots

There is a delicate web that crisscrosses its way across this land.  It’s like a huge connect-the-dots pattern, and it happens every Wednesday evening.  People gather together in their churches to pray and the wind of God’s grace gently touches the web, which is often laced with the tears of God’s most precious saints – ordinary people who take time out of their busy schedules to meet together and storm the throne of God.

Were you a part of this beautiful massive web tonight, or did you miss it?  I mention it because we were not at our own church tonight, and my mind kept drifting back there – to my usual part of the web, knowing that even in our absence, prayers were faithfully being lifted to the God of the heavens.  What a joy to pray with believers at one church and connect with others who were all doing the same thing!

And what is the reason for this great web?  Is it even necessary, or should it go the way of so many other strands of our faith?  Does America need prayer?  Do our churches need prayer?  Do you and I need prayer?  Do you and I need to pray?  If we don’t…who will?  “And Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees.” –Cowper  The question is, will you do it?

“And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.” Rev. 5:8

I've been blogging for several years now, and continue to be thankful for the opportunity to share my heart, as well as hone my writing skills. When I was urged to write about my passion, three things came to mind: my God, my family, and music. I am a born-again believer of Jesus Christ. My doctrine is Baptist, my stand is fundamental. I love the Word of God and want to share how it has changed my life. It is my primary passion; however, my family is the close second! God has blessed me with a wonderful godly husband who has led me and discipled me in my walk with Christ. God also gave us three wonderful children who, along with their spouses, all love the Lord and are passionate soldiers in God's army as well. Add seven grandchildren, and my heart is overflowing with praise to my God! Music comes in third and is a great burden on my heart. We all need to find what is acceptable and pleasing to God in this area. Like every area of the Christian life, we cannot just choose music because we like it.
