I heard about this Global Day of Prayer meet some weeks ago, but it was never my intention to participate in it.
Call me a sceptic but I am not one who do things for the sake of doing when there is no real purpose. And in my opinion, I reckoned that the Global Day of Prayer event would be of any good or use at all.
So what if Christians go there to gather and pray? What happens after the event? Will there be real change in their lives with the situation remaining the same?
And the purpose of those attending? Is it just to be in the buzz and glam of a big event? If so, what’s the point of being part of it?
God had His answer. This was how our conversation went….
God: Go to GDOP
Me: Huh?? Really must go? Why?
God: Do your little part in unite-ing the body of Christ.
Me: Orh… ok lor… *sheepishly*
And so I went. I laid me (my rights) down for His sake.
Well… I did enjoyed the time with God there. But more importantly, I’m glad I obeyed Him and did my part in building the spiritual walls of His Church for His glory.
“As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ”
1 Peter 2:4-5 (NIV)
