I was listening to the Word this morning, which I absolutely love, and I looked out at my surrounding.
Here in front of me was my tea cup from Kenya and the Operation Christmas Child boxes behind. I wonder if my boxes will be sent to Africa? God knows.
Anyway, I thought about the Word of God and how transcontinental it is. It's a Word that speaks globally to every tribe and nations. But most importantly, it speaks to every heart every pulsating with breath. "Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them" Romans 1:19
God has shown and manifested eternity in everyones hearts of man.
As we do our devotions and open up the Word, not only is the Word Global so are our prayers.
It's fascinating to know that just be saying a prayer, we can be doing "effective" Labor of Love anywhere in the world.
Prayer is faster than the intern, faster than the web, more effective then google or yahoo mail.
Pray goes anywhere.
So here I am at the table with Laptop in front of me thinking of all the places I can go just through prayer. For starts, Kenya like my cup, for my missionary friends live there. Next, North Carolina for Operation Christmas Child and all the kids that will receive a box of joy. Then, well, anywhere else I suppose.
Your devotion life can explode globally, just by making prayers for the nation. Try it and see what God might do.
