Here are my thoughts on this beautiful morning as I write and eat cantaloupe . Praying for people is asking for the good, whatever that may be, in a general way. Intercessory prayer, on the other hand, feels more proactive. It suggests that God and I are co-creating, that my prayer makes a difference in a substantive way. Intercessory prayer opens up the possibility of asking God for specific outcomes, which, as I have written about often, I am reluctant to do.
For sure, I’ll keep writing about his. As we say in the UCC church, God is still speaking. I guess that means that I have to keep listening.
