4 BIBLICAL WAYS TO PRAY THIS SUMMER Along with the cookouts, campfires and family reunions, here are ways to celebrate the season spiritually.By Bob Hostetler Summer—a season of cookouts, baseball, beaches and vacations. There’s so much to like about it. Even more so if we make it a season of prayer. It’s more than possible…easy, even, with some of these prayer prompts: 1)  When plants and flowers blossom One of my favourite early summer prayers is actually a listening prayer, as I imagine God inviting me into the delights of the season in the words of Song of Songs 2: See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me. (Song of Songs 2:11-13, NIV) 2)  Holidays and vacations It can be hard to downshift from work to rest and relaxation, but holidays and vacations are an opportunity to pray, “Lord, remind me that your word says, ‘In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.’” (Isaiah 30:15, NIV) 3)  Around the campfire Is anything as mesmerizing and calming as gazing into a fire? It can also move us to pray. Perhaps a prayer like the following can be recalled as you watch fuel being added to a fire:  “God, remind me to consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of them. If that is how You clothe the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will You clothe and care for me.” (Based on Luke 12:27-28, NIV) 4)  Cookouts and reunions Among the blessings of summer are grilling out and gathering with friends and family. On such an occasion, this prayer, drawn from Psalm 65:11-13 (NIV), can turn our hearts to God: “You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance. The grasslands of the wilderness overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness. The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing.” Thank you, Lord, for your bounty and the abundance of this table, amen.  Those are just four ideas to make summer a season of prayer. You may add others of your own, such as prayers while in the car on long trips, prayers as you watch a child or grandchild playing football, and more. And won’t it be great, at the end of summer, to look back not only on cookouts and vacations, but also on those rich moments of prayer?

                                             ******************************************

LIFE LESSONS FOR TODAY from the Bible by Pablo Diaz.  The greatest storybook of all is the Bible, and it covers many important themes that can help us to navigate our own lives. We learn how others did or didn’t overcome tragedies, loss of loved ones, betrayal and disappointments. The stories in Scripture can stir up questions and raise doubts, but also provide insight for daily living, empower us and fuel our faith. Although some stories may make us feel uncomfortable or lead us to question the characters’ and God’s intentions, we also find valuable life lessons. In Genesis, Abraham’s faith is tested by God in what seems like an irrational way. God commands Abraham to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice. After Isaac is bound to an altar, a messenger from God stops Abraham before the sacrifice is made, saying, "now I know you fear God." God requests Abraham to commit an unthinkable act to test his faith. But Abraham placed his full trust in God and withheld nothing from Him. When we reflect on this story, we realize that to deepen our faith, we must let go and give up all that gets in the way of our relationship with God. Like Abraham, our faith is tested in different ways as we move through the seasons of life. Unlike Abraham, we aren’t called to sacrifice our children, but we are challenged not to let materialism, greed, selfishness, careers or even people become the centre of our lives. Some days we adhere to the call, while on others we may not, giving into what comes easily. The story of how God tests Abraham is only one of the many narratives we find in the Bible that inspire and fuel our faith. For example, Joseph’s willingness to forgive his brothers who sold him into slavery reminds us that forgiveness can heal a family. The small boy, who gave Jesus his two fish and five loaves of bread, shows us that God can multiply our simple resources to make a difference in our world. These and many other stories can renew our spirit as we navigate daily life.
