The Emergency Prayer Request

Disciple, if you’re around for some decades you’re going to get thousands of these.

“John’s been taken to hospital”

“Rachel’s sister lives in the path of the severe weather”

“There’s been a terrorist attack”

“I’m feeling awful.”

You could take these on board. Worry about them. Cause them to continually provoke existential doubt. Forward them on to others.

Or, you could actually pray about them.

Simply, succinctly, secretly lay them before the Father, and ask Him to move.  There may be a pause, a sense of the need to continue praying, or spend some time listening to the Spirit. Or maybe not, and you just move on with the day.

But disciple, you’ll get a lot of these – so have a go to place for them.  His response to our feeble, whispered prayers really does shift things.
