TO BE AN INSTANT PRAYER RESPONDER

Today's news is so quick it's sometimes difficult to catch your breath before the next update comes flying in. Through modern portable media like BlackBerries and iPhones, not to mention the twittering phenomenon that's completely changed the speed at which news travels, the world scene is instantly available. Whether one is faced with reports of lives lost, scandalous actions, threats to peace, or more positive indications of the global goings-on, there's a counter need to be just as speedy with a spiritual response.

I can't help but think of the news Jesus dealt with on a daily basis. Not unlike today, the greatest need at his time was for healing, and he responded to the messages from the masses. Lazarus had died? Not so; he would raise him to life. A young girl was gravely ill? Do not fear; he would restore her health. A woman struggling with an ailment for twelve years? Let history cease to be; the healing Christ would save her.
