Re:Verse passage – Daniel 9:1-23 (day five)  Now while I was speaking and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God in behalf of the holy mountain of my God.
One of the opportunities we have in this season of quarantine, is solitude. God has slowed us down. There is room now for deep meaningful individual and personal reflection, study, and prayer. Those times with God are designed to be sweet, intimate, and powerful. Daniel experienced a personal and dynamic relationship with God. Yet, even in isolation he carries a burden for the people of God.  We must pray I/We prayers.  Personal and corporate. Individual and community. My concern is that members in our  family of faith will be seen only as windows on a zoom conference- that through virtual community, we might somehow lose our passion to bear one another’s burden. They must be on your heart. We must call out their names to the Living and Holy God. This week as you pray (personally), will you also pray for your class and church.  Will you let them know of your love and deep concern?  May we love the Lord and each other well!

One thought on “I/We”

  1. Before this time of stay home and stay safe, I was meeting with a friend from my Bible Study class usually at some coffee place. We would share, and pray together. Now we video chat through messenger and still are able to share and pray together. It has been just as meaningful and I’m grateful for our friendship.
