40 Days of Prayer – Good

Prayer is the first step toward coming to know that this is not looking to devour you.  That’s the devil’s mission, the Bible says, not this good creation of God’s.  Jesus told us the pagans run after things they believe are in short supply, because they see the universe as a chaotic, hostile realm.  But Jesus knew better.  That which God called good, we need not fear.  When we pray, we come out of chaos and move toward this good God who hears and responds.

Day 6 – Will you ask this good God, who created this good universe, to reflect his goodness in you?

“Whatever is good,” think on it, Paul says.  Goodness is alien to our sinfulness, but as we hunger for goodness through prayer, we will learn it again.
