So, I’ve just finished a rather trying day. I”m not going to lie, the way my peers wallow in their own sin can be rather…. disturbing to me. Conversations around me are un-wholesome and I’m learning things about people that I wish it wasn’t true.
Last Sunday we started this call to prayer thing at my church(which I encourage all of you to do) which is where you pray non-stop and seek God non-stop. You fast on Mondays and come to prayer meetings and stuff. It;s all pretty amazing. Here‘s the video that kind of explains the call to prayer(kind of, it’s more like a piece of evidence for the need of a call to prayer) It’s called a call to anguish. It’s pretty convicting. If you just clicked the link, I’d pause the video and go get a box of Kleenex.
Anyway, since by now you’ve watched the video, I’ll tell you about how this has affected my life in the past week. Something that I’ve been praying about(Somewhat weakly) has been to see the world through God’s eyes. I’ve prayed that God would open my eyes to have compassion on people. Well, on Sunday I actually earnestly prayed for anguish. The yield has been astonishing. I see all my friends and all the struggles they have and all the crap that’s in their lives and my heart actually breaks for them.
Last night, I was going to expand this post into something really huge, but I felt this immense urge to go to my room, shut the door and pray for the people that I’m blogging about. Sorry, this was going to be epic, but God had bigger more epic plans for last night.
