THE UPPER ROOM 2 MAY 2022 MONDAY DEVOTIONAL

TODAY’S TOPIC: NO DISTANCE IN PRAYER
Cletus L. Hull III (Pennsylvania, USA)

TODAY’S READING
Matthew 8:5-13

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
There is no distance in prayer.

Jesus said, “Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” – Matthew 18:20 (NRSV)

When I served as a pastor at a church in Pennsylvania, someone called me with a personal concern. As the conversation ended, I asked if I could pray with him. Sounding surprised, he asked, “Can we do that over the phone?” Praying over the phone was new for him. Maybe it doesn’t sound strange to us today, but it’s easy to resist at first that which is different. But we prayed, and God did the rest.

Every generation creates new ways of expressing love for Christ. As a pastor, I am always searching for innovative ways to reach people. Social media has become the new way to proclaim the same message: Jesus and his redeeming love for us on the cross.

We hear this word from Matthew’s Gospel: “Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” Christ is the glue that binds us even through our new technologies.

Years ago, I heard another phrase that stuck with me, and I think about it when I pray with people over the phone or on social media: “There is no distance in prayer.” Because of Christ, we have a strong connection holding us together!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, remind us that you can draw us together in community no matter the physical distance between us. In your holy name we pray. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
Churches working with new technology
