Pray Bigger

How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.  Psalm 36:7 NIV

pray biggerI welcome each brand-new day as the golden-haired dawn draws back the veil of darkness.

We all hope to have a feel-good day of renewed positive energy. To me, God is like the sunrise—unfailing and reliable. The wings of dawn approach. It is like drawing back our human darkness as Jesus approaches in our prayers.

How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings. This psalm seemed apt for the day as I read the Holy Word. At certain stages, I have taken refuge in the shadow of our great God’s wings. I kept on praying. These days, thanks be to God, my life is all quiet on the Western front and quiet on the eastern seaboard of this lucky land.  

To me and each follower of Christ, nothing is wrong with praying for God to grant us a peaceful refuge. We should all pray bigger—for more holiness in our world, greater faith, and God’s wings to soar over the younger people we raise or educate. I still do this as a tutor.

We can pray that Jesus appears to every generation ahead in their prayers and that they would have more compassion for the vulnerable. We can keep praying for solutions for the issues that confront them. Any prayer with good intentions is good.

Like our Lord Jesus, we must dream and pray bigger, as He taught us. Even if times get tough, God’s steadfast love will never fail us. Pray bigger.
