The Lord’s Prayer 30 Day Challenge: Day #6 Heaven’s Boomerang
So I sit today with my coffee, praying and pondering about heaven; a word used twice in The Lord’s Prayer. There are days I seem to confine God to the boundaries of heaven! Why does it seem my prayers boomerang right back to me? Did something go wrong with the phone line – are all circuits busy to God? These are days I struggle to understand why as believers we treat each other as if God doesn’t have perfect vision. I want God to fix it when I know his Word gives us the perfect instructions and the necessary steps to follow.
The boomerang of prayer is a reminder to me that the bounce back is because God has heard me and I am at least half the answer to my own prayer. There is something I can do about “Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.”
My thoughts go far beyond these thoughts, my prayers far beyond these prayers and I thank God the Holy Spirit intercedes for me when I can’t speak a word (Rom. 8:26). Even my groans reach God’s ear in heaven!
