praying rugby

Prayer is not meant to be the pathway to "smoothly."

"God, please let this thing go smoothly."

That may be the word we use most often while praying, but when that concept dominates we turn God into a pleasure slave. Then... then... then... when He doesn't deliver on our false image of Him, we then get mad at Him for it.


Prayer is actually the pathway to a relationship... to perspective... to Life.

It is actually something like rugby.

You will find community with God and others in the scrum... all while you wrestle over what truly matters.

To be honest, you just might get a black eye as you personally engage.

Then again, following Jesus is not about being a spectator to "smoothly"... but is about it is the path to victory.
"Pray continually" (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
