Keller: Put wheels on your prayers

I am very thankful for the ministry that God has allowed me to have which is dealing with some of God’s chosen people — the drug addicts and alcoholics.

These are people, who in search of fulfillment, turn to mind-altering chemicals.

They are looking for answers to life’s problems; they are desperate for real solutions. I share with them that Jesus is the answer to all of their problems.

Thursday, as we gather to celebrate, let us remember the less fortunate.

As Christians, let us be reminded that we should reach out and help the sick, the homeless and the hungry.

A few years ago, at a halfway house for drug rehabilitation, I noticed three posters on the walls.

One showed an old man sleeping on a park bench. The inscription read: I was homeless and the Christian prayed for me in the comfort of his home.

Another showed an old lady who was sick, lonely and crying. That poster read: I was sick and the Christian thanked God for his good health.

The last poster showed two young, poorly dressed hungry children with looks of desperation which read: We were hungry and the Christian gave thanks for his abundance of food.

Yes, it’s important to pray, but God expects us to put wheels on our prayers.

We are commanded to love one another.

Hebrews 13: 1 and 2 says – “Continue to love each other with true brotherly love. Don’t forget to be kind to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!”

This Thanksgiving, let us enjoy our holiday, but, also, let us make a commitment that each day in the future, we will be aware of the hurting people in our community.
