When I came across this picture several months ago, I knew I had to share, ESPECIALLY voting eve. The acronym A.S.A.P. usually stands for As Soon As Possible . This ASAP is that gulp in your throat when you get handed a project at work, anxiety about this election, or something in life that requires your urgent attention. Now! Hurry, rush, panic and produces a fear and anxiety.
What if we did turn this acronym around to Always Stop And Pray? What would the result be? Heading into that project or the urgent in life prayed up, ready and most importantly in peace.
What if we got caught up in hurrying up to slow down and took a moment to stop and pray. This would fulfill the word when it says in
1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray Continually
Today I’m grateful for the ability to pray. To pray to thank, to ask for direction, to find peace!
What are you grateful for today?
