This past weekend we talked about 50 Days of Unbroken Prayer at CampusSERVE. Two things today stand out to me:
First, check out this Sojourners’ article from Shane Claibourne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove. You may be familiar or unfamiliar with the authors, but that’s not the point. The article is entitled “50 Ways to Love Your Neighbor” and my favorite line from the article says, “We’re all for getting together to say prayers … but we’re also challenged by the ways scripture stirs us to become the answer to our prayers.” This is not an action against prayer, but a proclemation of involvement when our warn out knees raise from the floor and the tears are wiped from our messy eyes and our hearts feel burdened for people in prayer. Try being the answer to your own prayer. Do you think God will be mad about that?
Second, tonight @1:00AM I’ll be doing an hour shift with Rachel for 50 Days Unbroken. I will NOT be twittering my experience. Instead, I will be retreating from media involvement and I will be praying for you all. I will be praying that (1) we will seek our God more and more, (2) that He will show us our weaknesses where He is strong, and (3) that we will fall in love with people and start to like them.
Stay tuned for more 50 Days Unbroken updates. Love to hear about your experiences with Unbroken. Leave a comment.
