Could you not pray with me for one hour
I tend to day dream during the day. It just happens. As a matter of fact it happened again this morning at worship. I know, right? This particular worship was at the Lutheran Center in Chicago. After the sermon we were invited to stand and sing a hymn and during the second verse, my brain hit the road. I don't exactly know where it was headed but my head was no where near the Lutheran Center. Suddenly and abruptly I was brought back from my mental pilgrimage with the words, "And we pray for Bishop David Brauer-Rieke, and the Oregon Synod and all their ministries." What? Suddenly my ears perked up. Why are they praying for us? Did we do something?
I have been thinking about this most of the day. I appreciate that people are praying for us but what is the difference between praying for some one and praying with some one? I wonder...What do you think?
