Well Connected

Dear God: I’m pretty connected. After all, I work at my computer all day and sometimes into the night and have full access to e-mail. My Outlook actually makes a beeping sound when I get a new message. And Facebook. What can I say? With that instrument, I’m connected to people all around the world. We share really important things like how glad we are it’s Friday and bad news such as the Cardinals lost. Then there’s my Blackberry. Even when I’m not at my computer, I’m “connected.”

But what about the most important connection? Being connected to my boss and my friends is one thing, but what about the connection to the one who sustains me? (Ephesians 6:18, NLT) is pretty specific: “Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.”

God, make me aware of my need for prayer and also my need to pray for others.

In Jesus' name. Amen.
