When we are stunned to the place beyond words, when an aspect of life takes us away from being able to chip away at something until it's down to a manageable size and then to file it nicely away, when all we can say in response is "Wow," that's a prayer. - Anne Lamott
Sunday, January 27, I wrap up my first message series for 2019 and its last installment is "The WOW Prayer." Take a moment to digest Lamott’s above definition from her book, Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers.
I want you to complete a take-home exam between now and Sunday. Take note of your WOW prayers this week. You know, the observations that stop you in your tracks because God serves you a heaping of “I am God!” and you simply reply, “Wow!”
Personally, I am wowed by you – the people of a community called Trinity leaning into the future. Wow, look at God!
