A lot of us struggle with prayer. We pray like we’re picturing the conversation that we want to have with God, instead of just… talking to Him. Listening to Him. In Luke 22:39-46, Jesus prays. He prays like someone who looks God in the eye as He’s doing it. He models how to do it, in the moment that He needed it most.
We live in a world where we ‘need’ likes on social media. Heather went to an internet safety seminar led by one of the teachers at Holm School this week, where she learned that if kids don’t get half a dozen ‘likes’ on a post, it genuinely affects their self esteem. I’m not sure adults are much different. But I’m sure that the church is supposed to be. That we’re a community of people called not to worry about what they think of me, but rather to think about if they are okay.
