A House of Prayer

Re: Verse reading–Mark 11:12-33 (day two)  And He began to teach and say to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? But you have made it a robbers’ den.”  vs. 17


The picture above was taken in Maryville, Missouri where I attended Northwest Missouri State University. During my first years at school this convent was sold to the state to become a part of the corrections department. Every time I read this story of Jesus clearing the temple I picture this place that was a literal depiction of Jesus’ words. It doesn’t have to be this concrete to be true, however. God has called all of us to holiness, and we fill it up with our own desires and sin. Do you really want him to come in and cast you out? Seek him while he may be found, do business with God and return to prayer.
