A.S.A.P.: Always Stop and Pray
From Inside the Collar
The thing about Prayer (or worship or life) is that you have to let go of your agenda. You offer your agenda, but then you don't let it rule you or others. When we pray our spirit unites with God's Spirit. God's Spirit is bigger and kinder and wiser than ours, so God takes us in His Spirit on adventures. Prayer changes our perspective. In worship we forget about ourselves for awhile as we allow God to fill us. We find that we are filled with gifts and strength (some of which we would not have thought to ask for.) We feel lighter because some things we are carrying around are removed! As Taylor Swift says " Then one magical night, I forgot that you existed." :) We let go of things that have held us down and weighed down our hearts.
We can't plan for these adventures. We don't know how God will change things through prayer. But we know that prayer changes things. Prayer changes us.
Loaves & Fishes RI
In the immediate future we plan to focus our truck runs on the folks at Crossroads in Providence, as the need seems to be increasingly great there.
