Can you imagine what the world would be like if the whole Church were united in the dream of doing the will of God? If every congregation, every Christian believed it possible and desirable? If we believed that good religion is never bad business? If we were aware of His power more than our own flaws. We would become a mighty army! Not shuffling along, discouraged and wondering what to do next, we would wait on the Lord together and then march forward with invincible strength. Like a symphony of coordinated action, we would cooperate with his mighty plans. We would inspire the young, comfort the old. What challenging and exhiliaring work He would give us! Perhaps we don’t pray because we no longer believe it possible–not now, not us. We feel like grasshoppers in the face of our challenges. (Are you reading Numbers 13 and 14?) May the Lord restore our confidence. May He teach us to pray.
