Praying For Time

I’ve spent time in several churches in the span of my “christian” life and in many of those churches it was a regular custom to pray for Jesus not to tarry and for Him to come back for His church quickly. My perspective now is quite the opposite. Lately I’ve found myself, more and more often, praying for more time. I wonder if the people who are praying for Jesus to come quick realize that they’re going to be held responsible for the condition of our world. Do they know that…
– Every day approximately 30,000 people die from extreme poverty.
– One billion people live off less than a dollar a day.
– Twelve million African children have lost one or both parents to AIDS.
Maybe we all should be praying for more time?
