Prayer by Scotty Smith
The following is an excerpt from a great devotional on prayer called Everyday Prayers by Scotty Smith.
Dear Jesus, I have no clue what kind of wild beasts Paul wrestled with in Ephesus, whether they were of the four- legged or two- legged variety or if they were simply demons. It makes absolutely no difference. For Paul, all of life became a journey and adventure of living out the radical implications of the gospel. Because of your resurrection, he would be resurrected; therefore death held no threat. Because of your resurrection, all “beastliness” will be ultimately eradicated; therefore, he would wrestle anything for your glory. Jesus, this moves me to pray today for friends who have taken on various “beastly” callings.Who in your life do you need to pray for today?
