“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.” – Psalm 23

Friends, brothers and sisters in Christ, prayer warriors:
As you all read this entry from the comfort of your home, office or vehicle, there is a young lady who needs our prayer. Hannah Graham, a University of Virginia college student, disappeared early Saturday morning. The police suspect foul play. Please lift up her and her family right now. People have used this tragedy as a catalyst to debate the buddy system, alcohol intake and scandalous clothing. This will not be tolerated on my blog. It’s neither the time nor the place. We were all young. We all made irrational decisions. Luckily, most of us were able to escape the harm and danger that likely met Hannah Graham last weekend. Please don’t judge this young lady. Just pray that she returns home safely.
Thank you!

I like Romans 8:26. I know I’ve used this verse before, but it’s the one on my heart today.

I’ve always found this verse to be of great comfort when I feel so spiritually exhausted that I don’t have words or thoughts or even feelings. I simply cry out “Lord”, and I know He knows my prayer. But today, as I read this verse again, I find a new meaning.

The Spirit does intercede for us, as the verse says. And thank God for that! But, today, I ponder over the part of the verse that says we know not what we ought to pray. This is true. The only way I can form my prayers is selfishly, with my ideal scenario in mind. But that’s clearly not the best, because as you know, God’s best may look totally different than what we envision.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that even when we pray selfishly for particular outcomes, the Spirit intercedes on our behalf to pray as we should. His will, not ours. But wow, this is difficult to actually live out.

I don’t know about you, but I’m thankful to have someOne coming behind me to pick up my slack. I’m thankful someOne knows what’s right for me. Because, if left up to me, I’ll fail every single time.

Let the Spirit intercede for you in whatever you are facing today. God can’t get it wrong!

We can spend the little amount of time we are given on this Earth chasing knowledge, money, relationships, approval, acceptance, revenge, power or even the next high..but if we don’t invest in the eternal, the God-breathed and inspired, we will lose our souls! If you don’t know by now, soon you will know, the only thing in life that remotely matters is what we do for Jesus.

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” – Mark 8:36-37
