Favorite things: going to church today.
As Jesus sat in the garden of gethsemene with his disciples before he walked towards his death, he knew the days beyond the garden.
Even though he knew the results beyond the hour he found himself in, he asked the disciples to stay up and pray.
Stay alert; be in prayer so you don’t wander into temptation without even knowing you’re in danger. There is a part of you that is eager, ready for anything in God. But there’s another part that’s as lazy as an old dog sleeping by the fire.” (Matthew 26:41 MSG)
Today I was lying in bed with my little man next to me in a Moses basket and my husband was singing him to sleep.
The words to the song went like this…
‘even if we speak the language of angels but we don’t have love, then all my words are empty symbols, they are sounds without melody.’
It really made me think about our prayers and the substance of them.
Jesus asked his disciples to pray even though he knew the outcome of them would not change, but he knew the prayers would change the disciples.
However if our prayers are without love, they are empty melodies.
It seemed the disciples lives had become empty melodies, as one betrayed Christ, one denied him and the rest fell asleep.
These are the men who spent the most time with Jesus, yet their prayers were full of empty promises.
What is in your prayers that are empty melodies?
What parts of your life are lacking love?
Where are you failing to look beyond your today?
Jesus always looks beyond.
That beyond however is laced with prayer that is substantiated by love!
