The need of the hour

The need of the hour is not in our own ingenuity. We need to be smart, to be sure, but it is not necessarily “being smarter” that is the need of the hour.

The need of the hour is not more labor. Hard work is necessary, but hard labor only gets us so far.

The need of the hour is prayer. Bold, audacious prayer. Prayer that won’t give up. Prayer that won’t stop even if it gets to the point of embarrassing. This is the need of the hour. God, save me from my own laziness.

I tell you, even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacity he will surely get up and give you as much as you need. (Luke 11:8, NIV)
