No, thanks.

I'm always confused by the people who turn down prayer when you ask them if there is anything you can pray for them about. What is it about us that wants to just simply say "Not anything right now, thanks though." to prayer when offered? Is it our pride? Our problems? The people?

We simply need prayer, at all times. Let us not be taken by our pride or our need for prayer. Let us turn to one another at our highest times and at our lowest.

Are the times when we feel the best, the highest times in our lives, the time that we need prayer the most? To keep that upon us, so that when we fall we don't turn away from prayer and fellowship and above all, the love that Christ gives us. That unchanging, everlasting love!

"Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."
Hebrews 10: 22-25 ESV
