I received this from a friend who was connecting into KGF through the video message. Her words are a blessing to me, and I hope an encouragement to you as well! Pastor Mike
I was just listening online to Pastor Levi’s sermon from this past Sunday. When he got to the bit about group prayer my first thought was, ‘yeah, I’m in my living room and my palms are sweating’ and my second thought was ‘sooo glad I wasn’t there on Sunday’.
And then he asked people, including complete introverts like me, to get together in groups!! I wonder what it would have been like if he had said ‘those of you who are carrying a very easy-peasy load right now and have no particular need to pray can go over to that side of the room and chat or check your email and those of you with some big deal, heinous stuff on your plates should come over to this side of the room and find some new friends to pray with’. Would that have made it better … ?
I ask this because group prayer and authenticity really go hand in hand, don’t they? We know that Jesus sees everything in our hearts but we sure don’t want anyone else to.
