Meditation on ministry

The first job is to pray
Waking, and attending the duty
Calling on God to bless everything
Waiting on God to lead me

It is so easy to run ahead
To do, and to demand
It is so difficult to listen and pray
To find where God is already working

We might cry out for God to be on our side
Yet God must be on God’s own side
We must pray for God to change our hearts first
For we must come to God’s side

We build relationships
Yet we seem to busy to build them
We must pray God to touch each opportunity
We must ask God to show us each opportunity

The job description might leave this truth unsaid
But the first duty is to approach the day in prayer
