Grey Wolf

We were driving down a back road in cattle ranching country, along way from the last-seen farmhouse, when I spotted an animal skirting a stand of spruce and poplar trees. It looked like a large black dog. But the legs were too long, the frame too lanky and tall to be that of any dog I’d ever seen. Though I’d never seen a wolf in the wild before, I realized I was looking at one at that moment!

Wolves live together in packs and communicate with pack members and other packs over long distances by howling. On another occasion, while hiking in the mountains one fall, I listened to the mournful cry of a lone wolf under starlight as frost settled on the alpine meadow. It was a rare and special moment.

Think About It

God provided a means for wolves to communicate with each other over long distances. He has also provided every means for us to communicate with Him, though He may seem far away at times.

“We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express” (Romans 8:26).

Do It

There may be times when you don’t feel like praying. God understands. Honor your commitment to Him by making time for Him daily and meeting with Him as usual, even if you don’t feel like it. He will get you through the most difficult times, because His commitment to you doesn’t change.
