P.U.S.H. Pray Until Something Happens!
I wrote it in the margin of my Bible as the title for Acts 12.
The popular acronym has been around for sometime now. The truth is, something is going to happen whether I pray or not. So, do I mean Pray until God answers the way I want Him to? Or Pray until God readjusts my heart to accept His plans?
For years I have been using P. S. as my ‘call to prayer’ as: Pray Still, Pray Seriously, Pray Specifically and a multitude of other meanings. Here on the Gulf Coast, we have heard of BP so much that I wouldn’t be surprised if the local pirate’s parrot cusses British Petroleum. Those mocking birds only repeat what they hear.
B. P. I’ve chosen to let be a call to prayer for me personally whenever I hear is used in conversation, radio or TV reports or newspaper headlines or articles. B. P. =Better Pray! And not limit it to oil spills. The Scriptures teach that I should have a life of prayer about everything. “Pray always…” and “Pray without ceasing…” are just a couple of examples.
Holiday schedule for Dialysis means that we go Lord’s Day so staff and patients can have Thanksgiving at home. But we were greeted with report this morning that Harriet’s new fistula is no longer working so it will need de-clotting? The questions is: Can it be done? Can she endure another serious procedure on an already extremely sore leg without anesthesia? How much longer will the temporary access in her left leg be useable?
Obviously a LOT to B. P. = Be Praying about in these days ahead!
