are we really praying for africa?
stumbled onto a video while twitter hopping and it really grabbed me and made me thnk about the phrase “pray for africa.”
about 2 years ago i was at an event in dallas where one of the merch tables was selling “pray for…” shirts and had an assortment of every imaginable country or place on them. they were a missionary group who decided to help fund their ops via shirt selling at big venue gigs like the one i was attending.
i spent half an hour talking with a couple of them about their journies and projects and ended up diggin their whole approach and buying a shirt. the one i picked up said pray for africa and i wore it consistently for a long time.
as i look back tho i wonder how often i was actually on my knees praying for africa. prolly not very often. i mean i cared about it as much as the next guy and i harbored well intentioned thots toward the various situations threatening life and peace over there but i wasnt really affected by it. it didnt break my heart.
maybe its a timing thing and maybe i just needed a little fabric softener in my soul but i wasnt a minute into this video this morning before i was in tears over wot these people are going thru. and it breaks my heart to the point where i wonder wot i can do other than fall on my knees.
so i will.
but i wanted to share the vid with you first…
