It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.Mark 10:25 NIV
The other day I asked my American friends how they would pray for people living in another country. I’ve selected to omit the name of the country. Well, anywho! No one answered. I guess their reply wouldn’t have gotten them noticed or favorable “likes” by a large audience. Was I disappointed? Yes. Why? Because my friends are always in church and or participating in Bible studies. So as I sat perplexed concerning praying for others God gave me something to pray about. He showed me that in parts of the world unknown to me, people don’t have clean drinking water. I can’t imagine such because the water from my tap is among the best in the world. It comes from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. It’s hard! But! It is crisp clean and refreshing! And, as I see things now, clean water can be taken for granted. Let’s pray!
Good day, Lord! Thank you for putting a need on my heart and the hearts of others to pray for clean water. It shows us that people can and do take clean water for granted. And having access to it make some people feel entitled. Forgive us of our sins. Help those of us that have the ability to think outside of the box and or access to resources continue to move forwards in providing clean water to parts of the world where drinking water isn’t possible. Help us make the impossible possible, Lord. Amen
