Today’s post is called a samich prayer… because it’s a prayer sandwiched in between two other great things. (In my house, we call the traditional meat-and-cheese-between-2-slices-of-bread a samich… maybe because we are always so on-the-go that we need to abbreviate our language… or probably it’s because this sub shop in our neighborhood has these tasty little sandwiches called sammies.)
It’s pretty simple really… take about a 15 minute break from whatever you’re doing. If it’s quiet time for yourself, great! If you want to invite others to join you, wonderful! Prayer is multiplied wherever 2 or 3 are gathered.
Step 1: Watch this… it will open your eyes.
Step 2: Think about…
Imagine if we all gave ourselves to something bigger than we are.
What could the world be like?
What could you be like?
There isn’t any reason why things are this way… no single reason anyway. It’s just how they’ve always been and they intend to stay. But if we are to be God-centered people, then we need to figure out how to change some things. There’s enough food to feed the world, there’s enough medicine to heal the sick, there’s enough compromise to create peace. The real issue is: how much are we willing to give to make that happen?
The problems are huge and overwhelming… nothing can be solved overnight. But each of us can begin to do something… that is, if we believe that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. It takes guts to move out of our comfort zones… and will-power and stamina and courage and… desire.
What first little step will you take today?
Step 3: Watch this and pray silently. Make a small-step commitment to do something.
