The Generosity Experiment: Day 6
Finding out what happens when you look for opportunities to give. To read from Day 1, click here.
I was waiting for my Starbucks treat this afternoon, wishing they had sugar-free peppermint syrup, when a small red box caught my eye. It was a Wish Kit. It’s simple, including cute note cards and envelopes with sweet treats to send to six lucky people in your life. The idea is to write something that you’ve wished for them and mail it.
Fun concept, but what’s the point? There’s no more power in that wish than a 4 year old blowing out birthday candles, secretly wishing for a pony to appear.
What if we took this concept and gave our prayers to those we love, instead of our wishes? Wouldn’t you love to receive a note from a dear friend or maybe someone that is an acquaintance, not just telling you ‘I’m praying for you,’ but a handwritten card or a letter that is the prayer they have and will continue to pray?
“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” – James 5:16
What better gift than to pray for those we know. . . and let them know about it?
I Pray You a Merry Christmas.
