This summer my two oldest boys are learning a valuable lesson about a strategy for success as a hitter in baseball. They are learning that if they are disciplined with hitting the tee, they are much more successful in hitting the ball hard consistently whether the strike is high or low or inside or outside. When they do not take the time the day of the game to hit the tee at home, they are much less successful in hitting the ball consistently hard. They have noticed a direct correlation. Tee ball is not just a five-year-old thing to do, it is actually beneficial for 10-year-olds, 13-year-olds, and even major league hitters.
I am sharing this because this weekend we are going to receive a valuable faith lesson for success in life. The lesson is going to be on prayer. The truth of prayer is that it does have direct effects on our lives, and it is not just a child’s thing to do. So often we are too busy to pray or maybe feel that it is only for weak people. The truth is we are too busy not to pray, and that yes in fact we are weak, we are always in need. May the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus as you pray.
