“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.”
I have a prayer ritual that may sound kind of strange. You see, we live on an ambulance route for our city’s hospital. The sirens used to startle and bother me as the vehicles drove by our house. Then one day as I watched an ambulance whiz by, I decided to pray for whoever was needing it. Since then, I’ve become more aware of things happening to others around me. And though I may not know them or all the facts, I try to take a moment to lift up the situation to God. I like to imagine others might do the same for me.
