Where is God Calling You in Prayer?| Sharon Pearson
Where is God Calling You in Prayer?
On this 7th Sunday of Easter, we hear Jesus’ “high priestly prayer” to God: a prayer for himself, the disciples, and the world. Prayer for us doesn’t need to be as complicated or cosmic as Jesus’ prayer. By virtue of our baptism, we are a member of the priesthood of all believers. When we pray and join in Jesus’ activity of prayer, we are doing a priestly thing – bringing the pains and needs of the earth into the heart of God.
