So last Saturday was the CAMPers day of prayer and fasting for Jeremy Camp’s ministry and all those involved. For me in ended up being more a day of service with a quick prayer and no fasting of any planned sort. I helped with the cleaning of the nurseries at my church which I enjoyed doing. I volunteer in that area, so helping to clean it was fun especially since the next day I was in there volunteering. After I got done at church, I went to a coffee shop to begin the prayer time for the day and have some lunch. I ate lunch and my computer went haywire. I ended up packing up & heading home long enough to grab my external HD & go to parents’ so I could have 2 computers. After backing up the contents via safe mode & restarting (a couple hour process total), the computer behaved. I belive that spiritual warfare still exists even though Jesus is going to win, so the computer was not just a coinky dink. Needless to say last Saturday was not anything that I expected. The only prayer said was briefly while cleaning a ‘slide’ for the infants. And I could not make a decision on how I wanted to do the fast. I usually do some partial, Lenten style fast…Oh well, there’s always the prayer and service day August 5. I’ll be at a music festival waiting to see Jeremy’s worship set, so the prayer time should not be a problem, but the service might be. All I know is the upcoming day of prayer can’t be much worse than the one I attempted to have. God’s got something planned for it and I’m excited to see what that will be.
Yes I’m an optimist. The class is half full with room for plenty more. God had His reasons for the day being so-so, but worship at church the next day was good…so it can’t be all bad.
