When you look at the map of the world, what do you think? What do you pray for? How do you feel? When you imagine the billions of faces–hungry faces, angry faces, kind faces–what pulses through your mind?
What do we want to have happen when we pray? Do we expect God to answer us exactly when and how we want Him to? Or are we willing to leave it completely up to God as to what He does after He hears our prayers?
Are we patient in the midst of current circumstances? As we have this time to reflect and ponder, let us cultivate this very special fruit of the Spirit – that we may be ready for anything, strong in character, full and complete unto the glory of God!
