Read Galatians 3:26-28. Now, go into your neighborhood or town.
Pray for the people and places around you. Whether you personally know them or not doesn’t matter, simply pray for what you see. Pray for the people who live and work near you. For visitors. Pray for schools and gardens and places of employment. Pray for challenges and joys of living in this place.
Feel the connection to the ground as you walk and pray. An African proverb tells us, “When you pray, move your feet.” Reflect on what difference it makes to pray for the people in your neighborhoods.
This message is an excerpt from Cafe’s November 2016 article “Retreat where you are” by Kimberly Knowle-Zeller. Today we remember Johann Konrad Wilhelm Loehe, renewer of the church, who died in 1872.
