Temples: places of prayer (buildings, bodies, world)

Morning: Psalms 20, 21; Genesis 6:9-22; Hebrews 4:1-13

Jesus clears the temple because the house of prayer has become a marketplace.  He guards that sacred place.  Sacred buildings are under assault in our culture, too; even church people say, “We don’t need church buildings.”  Yet, we ourselves build bigger and bigger houses to live in!  It’s vital to set apart special places for prayer (in our climate, buildings) … Buildings dedicated to prayer develop sacred energy.  They help us remember that both the world and our bodies are sacred.  True prayer is mostly listening; both the world and our bodies desperately need quiet places set aside for this.
