It's Labor Day and I have been at the local Labor Day Festival for the last two days. It’s great to get out and see people having fun, riding the rides, playing the midway games, winning a few stuffed animals, eating all kinds of food, and playing some bingo. On Friday I helped the local Church collect the money for Bingo because they were shorthanded. Amazingly, every table in my section won while I was working. Thank you, Jesus, for their fortune. It was fun to see them all
Numbers 3:5 - 8 The Lord said to Moses, “Bring the tribe of Levi and present them to Aaron the priest to assist him. They are to perform duties for him and for the whole community at the Tent of Meeting by doing the work of the tabernacle. They are to take care of all the furnishings of the Tent of Meeting, fulfilling the obligations of the Israelites by doing the work of the tabernacle."
To take care of the tabernacle was their work. To offer worship was the work of Aaron and his sons. Anyone else who tried to approach the tabernacle was to be put to death (Numbers 3:10,
38). So I guess it is not so odd that when I sit down to pray I think of it as my work. I ask, What are going to do today, Jesus? And I think of that as working together. We are supposed to be
co-workers, co-laborers in the vineyard, but I hadn’t thought so much about being co-laborers at prayer time. However, it is true that not everything is accomplished by physical work; much is also accomplished by spiritual work.
So, Jesus, what are we going to do today?
I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
