Those of you of a certain age will remember the ad to the left that had a regular place in the back of comic books. I have no idea how many of these novelty items have been sold over the years, but the promise of acquiring a super power previously reserved for Superman - and for only $1 - undoubtedly has lured thousands of adolescents to part with a portion of their allowances.
It's a common topic of "ice-breakers" and light-hearted conversation: "What super power would you like to have". For the record, I would choose the ability to fly.
But I wonder if you've ever considered that God is waiting for us to ask him for some supernatural powers. It's all just a matter of praying, quieting ourselves, and getting in tune with the Holy Spirit who resides within those of us who have chosen to make Jesus our Lord and Savior.
Last Sunday I shared two of those supernatural powers God wants to give us: the ability to hear insight and directions from God and experiencing the amazing fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) growing in our lives. This Sunday, October 27th, we'll discuss two more of those Reckless Prayers that can lead to supernatural powers. (HINT: one of those relates to the X-ray Specs).
I hope to see you there!
