World Cup Prayers
Right I know Ill probably get thrown out of uni – or at least off these blog spaces – for some kind of racial/religious hate incitement or something ridiculous but had an idea today.
(a quick bit about me first so you see where im coming from on this – i am a committed evangelical christian – no apologies)
The world cup is coming, right? (YYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY!!!!)
and I know that if anything is my 'idol', it's football.
So why not instead use my passion for football for God's purposes? so, during the world cup, I shall try and pray for something for every nation playing that day.
Prayer is the most effective tool we have from God, 1 Thessalonians 5 says "Be joyful always, Pray continually, Give thanks in all circumstances, for this God's will for you in Christ Jesus". So the world cup gives an excellent context for that! (remember the brasil team praying together after they won the world cup and confederations cup?)
ok…. so…. my plan… although i dont know if this will work or be consistant (just like the rest of this blog) is:
1. write comments on here about the football (related to the actual games, not which england stars' metatarsal will break next or whose girlfriend is wearing fake tan)
2. write some stuff about the countries taking part for the context of prayer – or probably post links to something that says it better than me
3. write in some things for prayer – prayer requests?
4. remember to do all of the above :)
so if youre reading this and have any prayer requests/suggestions etc please write a comment – and england's in the world cup so if its praying for a relative in hospital or even exams, post anyway! :D
if this works (the blog idea i mean, cause i know prayer does!), i might spread it round some ppl in CU/church/etc cos thats more effective praying :)
does anyone know of any sites i could find info on countries for praying about? im sure theyll be on google somewhere…
Come On England! (e desculpe, mas é o vez nosso para a copa :P )
