If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray
2 Chronicles 7:14
It was a wet Monday morning when I realised I couldn’t find my pass to get into the office.
This would mean parking the car further away, battling through the rain, unable to get through the barriers in the large complex where I worked.
It would mean waiting for a little while at the secure entrance, phone calls to the security lodge, eventually being swiped through by somebody else.
Somebody who had remembered their pass.
And it wasn’t until the end of the day that I remembered that my pass, small and significant, was tucked away in the glove compartment. I had completely forgotten I’d placed it there.
How often I forget to pray.
I can strive and hustle my way through the days; fighting battles that weren’t mine to fight alone, looking inwardly and to others, to meet needs that were never theirs to fulfil.
When all along there is access.
Tucked away in the glove compartment of our heart, there is God.
And He waits for us to call on His name.
To humble ourselves, and pray.
