The Mosquito Prayer

Have you ever felt like you or your prayers are tiny and ineffective? If so you are probably joining a vast and uncountable club. However, Josh Moody in his excellent book Journey to Joy (the Psalms of Ascent) tells of an African Proverb that says:

“try spending the night in a closed room with a mosquito”

Prayer may seem so utterly tiny in comparison to the massive global injustices that we see around us. However, the Psalms again and again show us that prayer is reaching out, feeble hands, to a might God, who is more than able to bring change and transformation.

Let’s pray lots of mosquito-like prayers.
