We went to PA this weekend to help a friend move. We are strange in that we will do these deeds of kindness or adventures into insanity whichever you want to call it. We are currently waiting for news of another friend who is trying to buy a house….That will require a trip to Ohio…Hubby doesn’t know that yet….:)
I always pack the cd player and several of the Radio theatre cd’s or a good preaching cd….depends on what the kids want to listen to but this time I went unprepared.
It wasn’t until we were on the road and had the radio on that I knew why I “forgot” the cd’s. I would have missed an important message that I needed to hear.
I was discussing what I had posted previously with a friend and she turned the tables on me. She started asking me the same questions I usually ask of others. You know…”Are you reading your bible?” “How’s your prayer life?” “Are you really trusting God in this matter?”
Shamefully the answer has been no to all the above….I had grown lax in each of those areas. Oh I was praying, but not for anything we needed it was for other prayer requests and giving a cursory “Oh, and be with MIL and the Hubby…etc.” Nothing like I have needed to be doing.
As I was listening to this radio broadcast there were several things that came to mind. Areas that I had grown deficient in were affecting my prayer life.
If you are interested in hearing the radio broadcast it can be found at this site. The broadcast title is “Let Prayer Change Your Life”
It was a conference talk given by Becky Tirabassi. I am going to go back and listen again….maybe even now. I noticed several other messages that might be of interest all dealing with prayer.
I must add that I do not agree with every teaching by this person….not withstanding some of it is still good. You may not agree either, but we should always be open to God’s message….you never know who the messenger will be. My biggest pet peeve is that I cannot handle listening to this person talk. I find his voice annoying in that perfect enunciation/diction/intonation sort of way…..I know. Terrible thing to say…….but that is just me.
More later…..Not done with this post yet.
