waiting on your prayers

Pray. Take your time.

We're so tempted to rush, to feel pressed for time, when it's exactly the opposite that is true.

We think the world around us is moving so fast, if we take time out of our schedule to simply pray, there's no end to what we may miss.

If only we knew how wrong that thinking is. I challenge you, take your time, see what happens.

Every time I have ever cut my prayers short because I was running late, the meeting was cancelled, or there was a traffic jam, or any number of other delays that meant I could've taken my time.

The whole world is literally waiting on your every word.

Prayer is what makes the world go round.

How do I know?

וְכֹל שִׂיחַ הַשָּׂדֶה, טֶרֶם יִהְיֶה בָאָרֶץ, וְכָל-עֵשֶׂב הַשָּׂדֶה, טֶרֶם יִצְמָח: כִּי לֹא הִמְטִיר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים, עַל-הָאָרֶץ, וְאָדָם אַיִן, לַעֲבֹד אֶת-הָאֲדָמָה.

Chazal explain, when God created the world the rain didn't fall and so the plants didn't grow until after man existed to pray for the rain.

The whole world is waiting on your prayer..

..so what are you waiting for?
