That’s right folks its 4:53:55 (AM of course), You’ve actually managed to fall asleep in the armchair of an airport in a quiet corner where the passing travellers wont disturb you. You’ve been asleep for about 15 minutes…Perfect!
5,4,3,2,1 - you just realised you actually chose a spot right next to the airport speaker and your ears are being bombarded with this sound…
That’s right folks it 4:54am and its time to pray! It takes me a moment to remember where I am and what is going on… Oh that’s right, you’re in Dubai, in the UAE. You connect the dots and in this moment you can decide to be cranky because you were woken up or because your ears are being bombarded by the Muslim call to prayer (Fajr or Dawn Prayer) or you can take that moment that was designed to be an obligatory time to pray to Allah and choose to worship the one true God, our God, and thank Him for the opportunity to be just where you are, at that moment in time because you are on your way to meet people who are world changers, disciple makers, kingdom builders. Men and women who love God and are obedient to the call of God on their life.
So I focused my thoughts on Him, the Alpha and Omega, the Author and Finisher of our faith and gave thanks for the day that was ahead of me… and also for coffee!
