Still working on my father/ daughter devotional, due soon. Came across this passage, which was especially convicting and compelling in the Message translation. Lord, you know what You're talking about through this servant writer. And boy do I ever aspire to reach these statutes.
“Since prayer is at the bottom of all this, what I want mostly is for men to pray—not shaking angry fists at enemies but raising holy hands to God. And I want women to get in there with the men in humility before God, not primping before a mirror or chasing the latest fashions but doing something beautiful for God and becoming beautiful doing it.” (The Message)
