Like or Share – It’s Called Prayer

LIke or Share

The ladies of the white church on the traffic circle in McKenzie Towne have found a secret. They have found the secret to living connected.

Connected to

  • themselves
  • others
  • God

They have found  the secret of how to connect with those they can’t see & can’t hear.

They have discovered the secret to having:

Real But Virtual Relationships 

Virtual Relationships That Connect

Heaven with Earth

Virtual Relationships That Bring

Hope & Peace Into  

 The Chaos of  Everyday Life

 

The secret is a  Facebook Group called MTC Ladies. The entire purpose is to share life , share struggles & pray for each other.

 

 It’s Confidential 

It’s Real

Real Time Prayers

For The 

Real Time Problems

Of 

Real People

 

Let me give you an example. I told you on Wednesday about my reader whose baby was born at 26 weeks gestation.

I was devasted for her & in tears. I didn’t have the words to pray or to even understand the ‘why of the situation’?

With the mom’s permission I posted the details on MTC Ladies.

Here is the sequence of posts with like & comments

  • Friend in labor at  25weeks  (9 Likes & 13 comments)
  • Great news ( 9 Likes & 2 comments)
  • Bleeding & contracting (7 Likes & 11 comments)
  • Baby born – 2 lbs, 2 oz (19 Likes & 18 comments
  • First photo (26 Likes & 3 comments)

I could continue but here are the points  I want to make.

I struggle with prayer.  I  feel guilty about my  prayer life.  Movies like War Room both  motivate & frustrate me . I need a simple model.

A Simple Model 

In  the MTC Ladies Facebook group I found a simple model that works.

Baby Liam is still here. Still thriving! Against all odds . If he had been born just one week earlier he would have qualified for a late term abortion.

We then go a little deeper . We take time to comment.  God sees as we write. He sees as we take the time to enter into relationship.

For Liam’s mom, a comment on the First Photo  of little Liam brought great comfort & hope.

“Little sweetheart! He looks beautiful…. Our good friends three grandchildren were all born prematurely & none were over 1.6 pounds but God kept them safe  Today, they are doing so well.. Ages 6-11. They’re so bright and talented. We will pray that God will continue to knit this little boy even if he had to leave his Mom’s cozy “nest” so early.”

We are tormented by thoughts like:

  • I don’t pray enough
  • I don’t know how
  • Do my little prayers make any difference?

The Enemy would want you to think

  • This is too simple
  • Hitting Like on Facebook isn’t real prayer
  • What a waste of time
  • Go do something ‘spiritual’

 

 

Jesus Came to Real people with Real Needs 

He Came Into the Middle of Their Messes
