WEGO Prayer Guide – October 2018

“Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the bandlands.”
-Isaiah 43:19 (The Message)

How many of our prayers are only focused on returning our lives to some previous comfort? It makes sense for us to pray this way because we love what we know. We find peace in what we can understand and what we can wrap our heads around.  But following God for more than a minute teaches us that God is working a will that is not always easy for us to calculate. Twelve chapters later in Isaiah 55, we read that God’s ways and thoughts are higher than our own. That’s why we need faith – to keep walking and trusting that the future that God has for us is better than anyone we could plan or dream-up for ourselves.

So, as you pray, don’t just pray your life returns to some season found in your history. Pray that God will align your heart and plans with the brand-new thing that He is doing, whatever that might look like. God is our Help in ages past but He is also our Hope for years to come. These exhorts from the Prophet Isaiah should change the way we pray and the way we hope. May we be present and alert to what God is doing in our lives and the lives of those we pray for. Who knows what God actually might be up to? Not us. That is a good place to be.
