This is Walk the Way. Brought to you by Q Place. I’m Jeff Klein.
When I was a kid, I was lucky enough to see Barnum and Bailey’s Circus more than once.
My favorite—the clowns.
My second favorite—the elephants.
But the most nerve racking were those crazy acrobats who would perch on that small platform at the top of the stadium, ready for some death defying stunt.
I remember the tension.
No one was sure where to look, but then, all at once, a giant spotlight would direct our eyes to the ceiling where the acrobat was perched. The light surrounded the performer and every eye was directed to her by the light.
When I think about praying for my neighbors or my friends, it’s similar to what I experienced at the circus.
Prayer directs a spotlight toward them and just like the person running the spotlight, I help direct God’s gaze in their direction.
Who around you needs God’s gaze?
Pray for them. Aim God’s spotlight in their direction.
Let’s talk about prayer on facebook.com/walktheway.
