A Priviledge to Pray

I was sitting in my Mom's in Touch weekly prayer group, when I thought back through the past three school years. Before my kids started kindergarten, I didn't know such a group existed. Actually, at our school, it didn't. Now, midway through second grade, I can't imagine NOT having a group praying for the students, faculty, staff and administration involved in our school.

I realized what a privilege it is to be ABLE to pray - both theologically and politically speaking. I have a God to be in relationship with - and I live in a country that grants me the freedom to do just that.

Several days ago, I had a friend reply to a prayer request that I sent out by thanking me for inviting her into the prayer circle. Honestly, at the time, I thought the response was a little odd. Today, I may be a little closer to understanding that it truly IS a privilege to pray.
