I went to church yesterday. Yes, yesterday was Sunday and I went to church. But for some reason, I had no desire to go to Sunday School or as we call it theses days, Bible Fellowship. So, I checked in to Southeast Baptist Church on Face Book and headed to the prayer room. As I was walking I said a little prayer. I prayed to God, our Father in heaven. I asked God to make a way out of no way for just one of the little lights in the tea-cup to still be burning.
The Revive Services, at Southeast Baptist Church ended on Wednesday, March 4th. Mind you yesterday was Sunday March 15th. The instructions on the battery operated tea lights stated the tea lights would burn for two hundred and forty hours. Well, two hundred and forty hours is ten days and the little tea lights had been burning at least since March 1st. That is way more than ten days.
So, yes as I was walking down the hall toward the prayer room, I said a silent prayer to our Father. It was not even a whisper. It was more like a continued conversation, it was more like me walking and talking to my close friend Anne. Only, Anne was not there. So, yes, I said to our Father Lord, it would so amaze me if just one of the little lights would still be a burning. My prayer held no order. My prayer held little reverence other than Lord.
I walked into the prayer room, sat my black bag down on the prayer bench on the very front row. I bent over the low sitting altar in great expectation, only to find so many tea lights still burning.
After many cold and snowy nights they were still burning bright.
After the long grey days of a Tennessee winter …
After sheets of sleet and rain had fallen on green grass-grown brown ….
After the church people deserted the temple …
After the halls of foot steps grew slowly silent …
Some little tea-cup lights still burned low but bright.Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Matthew 7:7 (KJV)
