Ohhh – the “pee pee dance.” Why is it always so urgent? Just seeing that phrase makes my blood pressure go up a little (haha). “What do you mean you have to go right now? … What do you mean you didn’t go earlier when I told you to!? … Is your bladder the size of a peanut!?!” Urgency arises out of tragedy sometimes, poor planning sometimes, and sometimes … out of opportunity (that’s the fun one).
Here’s the opportunity . . .
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people– for kings and all those in authority … This is good, and pleases God our Savior.”(1 Tim. 2:1-3 NIV)
God is not doing the “pee pee dance” on the throne trying to urge us to pray. No, no, no, no, no (as if). Sometimes, with the anxiety in our hearts, we live as if God must be worried, wringing his hands and bounces around. But He’s not.
It’s as if God is saying, “Here’s an opportunity – this is good, and it’s pleasing, you’re going to like it. PRAY WITH URGENCY. It’s going to be fun. You’re going to see breakthrough. And you’re not going to have to do the pee pee dance to get there.”
If the right opportunity comes your way, you will urgently and joyful RUN after it!!! Well it has, it’s the opportunity to pray – run with it and see the supernatural become normal in your life!
