It is interesting how much shorter the prayer time is at some other local churches than at Westside Fellowship. Why must even our time for prayer be hurried so we can finish the service “on time?” On whose time? Ours? What happened to God’s time? It still belongs to Him. Why don’t we let Him tell us when it’s time to end our prayer time?
The cry of my heart the last couple of years has been for the American church to slow down and quit rushing through worship services so we can get to our favorite restaurant before the crowd from other area churches arrives or get home in time to watch our favorite sports event. Can we not give God one day a week where we take time for Him, where He is the center of attraction?
May God have mercy on us for what we have done with the time He’s given us.
