Day 6

And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, "Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it." And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.—Mark 10:13-16

I love that Jesus has this protective response. Can't you picture a group of reckless kids running at Jesus? Yet concurrently, there is this defensive line of adults who think kids are above God's pay grade. But Jesus, instead of acting like a primadonna, has a harsh word for those who are wrongly protective; who lack child-like abandonment.

Growing up should never result in us outgrowing certain attributes. Children can be: kind, genuine, trustworthy, reliant, simple, spirited, and caring. In adulthood, we sometimes "outgrow" these powerful and beneficial attributes. They are qualities Jesus said we must have to receive the Kingdom of God. Unless we are attentive, we will soon become everything that a child is not and lose that reckless abandon, becoming only rational and cautious. So today, be a little reckless, run to God with something. Come to him with a request that is beyond your reach. Ask for something a little crazy and unreasonable. Be irrational and run with abandon into the arms of a God who will not reject you.

DO THIS: This week, we are focusing on the discipline of prayer.

Your Call To Act (C.T.A.) today is:

  • Pray: for 5-minutes and ask God for something unreasonable today. If you have trouble coming up with something consider items in the 5-F Categories: faith, family, friendships, finances, and fitness.
  • Share: below that crazy thing you are praying about.

    I’m sorry but I think you’re all wrong. Nothing comes for free and if you want to make good money you have to put in the hard work. If businesses like this were easy everyone would be doing them and of course no one would be making money. In fact it’s almost better to have people continue to write negative reviews because it opens more opportunity for hard works and weeds out the people that want life handed to them on a silver platter. So please continue to share past stories of negativity it’ll push people that truly want to succeed that much harder. Those people that on top making money walked a hard road to get there. Don’t shame them for what you can’t do. Best of luck to all who just try something new to better themselves.

    Me and my wife have been taking a year of Sabbath and it ends on march 15th. Through that year we lost our rental house. My mother -in -law passed away and we lost our source of income. I then burnt out physically and emotionally. Also in the past year we have paid off all dept and lived with my parents gaining the support and guidance to recover from burnout and grief. My 2 sons had ample care takers and we paid for nothing. And God gave me a new job that met our needs and allowed me to recover.

    But now with the year almost done we need a spot to live. And we really don’t want to have a debt with the condition of the housing market right now in Canada. So this is my request
    ” God please show me where I am to live and raise my family by March 15 and let me own it without debt. Then I will use it to provide a place of healing for all you send me in need”

And, that through all this, our Father in heaven would be glorified (Matthew 5:16)!

  123. Seth Metcalf says:

    I prayed to God to end COVID-19 pandemic. I have friends and family that have been impacted financially because they were laid off from their job because of the virus.

  124. Tom says:

    My request is that all the angles of the Lord would heal everyone that is sick, and take covid 19 right back to the pit hell were it came from. Then leave a impression in the hearts of the people that the Lord healed, them because he 1st loved us, it is written that everything that has breath can praise the Lord! Cyndi my wife has a green wing macaw she praises Jesus and loves to worship with me that’s my little kid request. That’s why I love working with the pre K’s at Rockpoint. Trust me I know 4 year old that’s a better prayer warrior then me, Iam not afraid to ask him for pray!

  125. Les says:

    that congress will stop using this pandemic as a political tool and start working together and find a vaccine for it

  126. Kenneth McClatchey says:

    Heavenly Father, something totally out of my reach but is a great desire of mine is the salvation of my many siblings. Though I have shared Your gospel with them, they have been unresponsisive. Father, I ask that you use circumstances and your body to draw them into Your Kingdom.

  127. Brian Winckler says:

    I am human so I asked for financial specifics: A house with a pool on 10 acres
    A new BMW
    1/2 million to help my church with greater things
    Money to live on

    My regular prayers are about day to day and coronavirus type stuff. This is my crazy prayer.

  128. Brian says:

    That I will be bold with my family during this health crisis and use it as an opportunity to share Jesus’ promise of Hope with them as we talk about the concerns of the world around us.

  129. Robert Morgan says:

    I prayed for this worldwide virus to be gone, I pray for to have a bit more kindness to one another, all in Jesus name

  130. Stephen Donmoyer says:

    Lord, please have your words wake the souls of my adult children so they may come back to the church. May their hearts be set on fire and their stomach ache to consume the word

  131. Chad says:

    Heavenly Father, I ask for courage and strength to step into the river… and become the spiritual leader for my family. Jesus, show me the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

  132. David Luevano says:

    Dear Jesus, I pray you keep my family and all from contracting the coronavirus and I also pray that my total knee replacement heals completely. I also thank you for all that you have already done. In Jesus name I pray.

  133. ching says:

    Jesus I ask you to help us find a cure quickly for this virus and so Children can go back to school, they are driving me nuts

  134. Steve says:

    A couple of things, end the virus. But also for the souls in our country and around the world to put their trust in our Lord Jesus Christ. Sometimes we need a crisis in our life, to bring us back to the one who created us. God has promised never to leave us or for sake us. May God give us the strength to trust in him through this time.

  135. Ian Bonthron says:

    Let me be used by God to help those in need during this Corona virus outbreak and have no fear.

  136. Ross Peterson says:

    Good points, mark. Asking God for radical change and transformation does not something Western Christians are used to it seems. Matt Chandler calls it the plausibility structure. We overthink rationally instead of relying on the holy Spirit. Christians in Southeast Asia for instance are very open to the holy Spirit making huge changes is there a culture allows for this possibility more so than ours.
    Anyway, my radical prayer for the day is hundreds of millions of new Believers on the other end of this virus crisis. When Church buildings are empty what a great time to show the world that the Church is NOT the building!

  137. rgoreckijr says:

    Is it unreasonable to ask God to alleviate our fears of this COVID-19 situation? This Psalm gives me peace. “I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.” (Psalm 34:4)

  138. Brad says:

    Dear Lord, help me to trust. To trust in you, to trust for you, to trust with you so that I will develop more in my emotional, spiritual, social, and physical life.

  139. Kevin Duncan says:

    To end the panic of the corona virus. To help me see the path of forgiveness with my ex wife.

  140. Ryan says:

    I’m praying my son, who is a senior in high school, will have the opportunity to return to school with his class.

  141. Coach says:

    Praying for an end to the Corona Virus crisis, healing of those already ill, the calming of the financial community, and those who are out of work.

  142. Brian says:

    Today I’m asking God for the ability to focus…maybe that is not reckless, but it is what I need. Too many thoughts, work projects and distractions.

  143. Pastor Mark says:

    Great thoughts, Vince!

    I think one of the most common instances of becoming “rationally cautious” is a loss of being “reliant”: as we grow up, we seek independence and self-sufficiency from our parents/guardians. Unfortunately, there also seems to be a corresponding loss of reliance on our heavenly Father!

    Crazy prayer for today: Lord, rather than helping our church merely sustain and weather the difficulties of a world struck low by the pandemic, may our church flourish and our witness SHINE, according to your good will!

  144. Buck Irwin says:

    Praying for a miraculous, sudden end to this Covid-19 outbreakthat can only be explained as God’s intervention! Also, another “Great Awakening” of God’s people through this experience.

  145. Doug says:

    Father, now that I’ve entered retirement, show me how you want me to use the time to show your Son’s glory to the part of your world where you’ve placed me.

  146. Troy Theye says:

    I have to pick Fitness in a non sort of selfish way. Because if I was healthier physically and even in my Faith in Jesus , alot of other things would definitely fall into place.

  147. Warren M Campbell Sr says:

    When I made the choice to run to God instead of running from him. He accepted me just they way I was dirty full of sin but he took me his arms clean me up and cleasne me from all my sins. That’s the kind of Father he is. Love him to eternity. I love this challenge cause it makes me look deep within an remember alot of things God has done for me that I may have forgotten. Thanks for this challenge.

  148. Chris Koelzer says:

    After years of laboring in the wilderness, multiple long-term business efforts are now on the verge of explosive success…so I pray that the LORD would arise and do Isaiah 43:18-19 for me, to his glory.

  149. Ted Williams says:

    Prayed with child-like expectation, as a child would their parents, for Jesus to heal our nation and our world from this Covid 19 virus and with the mature faith that he could do so if it is His will. I pray that he would find a Nation and a world coming back to Him at this time; and in that resurrected faith, he would be touched, see our faith, and grant this prayer. Amen

  150. Hugh Prichard says:

    There are many things I could bring to Jesus with reckless abandonment, but one thing that came to mind was for a clear, honest vision that allows me to experience empathy and confidence in others situations. For blessing on how to speak truth and aid into my families and others lives, no matter what their circumstances.

  151. Dan says:

    Who among us is not running to GOD’s arms with total abandonment seeking comfort with all that is happening in our world today. I know I am.

  152. Nick says:

    Give me the strength to get through my back pain, and when I get fixed give me the strength to get back in shape.

    Lord, help me find the fitness level I Need to keep up with my kids and continue to help my broken ankle heal

  156. Bryce says:

    Lord help us reset on the important things Like: faith, family, friends, financial & fitness , while you eliminate the Covid 19 chaos and uncertainty.

  157. Eric says:

    God I ask that you heal all relationships in my Family. That during this time we all can grow close again. Grandmas Grandpas, aunts uncles and cousins!

  158. Seth says:

    I pray for God to help provide me with opportunities to help increase my income so that I may be able to share it with others. And that an abundant flow of clients will come to me that I can.

  159. Ricky D Brittain says:

    I have many a simple one is that God blesses my family with another child. Ultimately, I would love an experience that Jesus would actually talk with me and tell me that I am on the right track and I am following his will for me on this earth. My biggest fear is I’m not hearing what he is telling me to do.

  160. Stephen Rovezzi says:

    I pray, and wish, and hope…..that mine, and all families, wipe away and erase their dysfunctional ways….love each other and their idiosyncratic ways. Yeah…that’s it. Amen. See ya tomorrow!

  161. Dave Benson says:

    Very fitting passage for the times we’re in right now! When a child is troubled and faces disruption they run to a parent where they feel secure. May this disruption we’re all facing cause us to run to our Father for the security only He can provide! So my ask today is in the faith category. Father, help me to put my trust in you alone!

  162. Chris says:

    I am praying to God that this season of confusion and mass paranoia over what appears to be God testing us doesn’t keep me from my goals of fitness and health before a planned peaceful and joyous cruise with great and faithful friends.

  163. Ray says:

    Would you overwhelm my son with your love for him so that he may know the height, depth and breath of your love and see himself as You see him. Thank you! Amen

  164. Davin Morris says:

    Praying for God to provide during this time and that He would grow my family in our faith and draw us closer together. I don’t want to waste this unique time.

  165. Joe Middleton says:

    That I you reveal to me where I should be at, and that I may grow closer to you trusting in every word you speak to me or every door that is closed I see you thru everything.

  166. Dave says:

    A global revival/people getting saved all over the place. No more persecution, but people living in relationship with each other and God.

  167. Tim says:

    This may not be insane, but please Lord help find a way to control this virus and rid the world of it and it’s disrupting and destruction of lives.

  168. Kevin says:

    My crazy prayer asked God for His supernatural healing and power over the last 6 mo of my life and those effected by it. Itz been one crisis after another. AND I also asked for His healing over all of the unresolved circumstances from my past that I’ve “hid away” instead of dealt with. Thank you heavenly Father! You are the God of the impossible.

  169. Robert Vining says:

    I have been divorced for a long time, I would like that my next wife life partner come into my life soon.
    My son Jonathan would come back to the lord.

    God, grant us release from this craziness that we are experiencing right now. Protect us from this virus. Help us to take advantage of this opportunity as well, to grow closer to our immediate families, with whom we are spending a lot more time with, and at the same time, keep us close to those we are not able to be with as we try to slow the spread of Covid-19.

  171. Tim Kelley says:

    Romans 12:9, “Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tight to what is good”. Lord, show me how to really love others during this time of pandemic.

  172. Ross says:

    Faith In Jesus – enough to pray and know it will be answered, to talk and converse, to love and be loved

  173. Michael says:

    I’m praying for safety against the Coronavirus since I’m immunocompromised, and that I don’t fall out of shape during this time. I know that last part seems shallow, so I’m also asking God to realign my prayers and care more about Him and others than myself

  174. Randy says:

    That my kids and their kids would really desire God and walk with Him . His heritage would continue through them until His return. That His kingdom would be clearly see by them and towards other as they rest and relying wholeheartedly on Christ righteousness. They would see fathers, mother and children reconciled as to God’s intent as His people preserved to Himself. Their homes would revive His righteousness to all peoples and open the way to put off sin and put on all He’s provided and promised.
    Because of His Great Name above all others we pray amen.

  175. Brad B. says:

    We hear about child like faith all the time! I sometimes feel that with my job I now have to “grow up” but at the same time, I would not be who I am no more. So Lord, I ask that I can let lose and be myself even more with my peers in the marketplace instead of having a barrier. Prabably should keep that social distancing thou.

  176. Eric M. says:

  180. Michael says:

    Father, I ask you to assist in stimulating participation and enthusiasm in our Men’s Group. That we all find eagerness and delight in strengthening our relationship with you.

  181. Rafael Dixon says:

    I have a few but I’ll talk about the YCOG MENS MINISTRY. I prayed that God wills the men’s ministry in His/our church to touch men’s lives all over the WORLD. And that YCOGMM becomes the example by which other Godly men’s groups follow. Amen!

  182. Dan Boswell says:

    Our heavenly father, bring us out of the current tribulation with a stronger, more powerful relationship with you, our family’s, our friendships, our businesses, our community at large, and God, help us stay afloat financially, because many will need your help.
