The word Sabbath or Shabbat comes from the Hebrew shavat, which means to rest. But the notion of the Sabbath being given just as a day of rest for weary workers would imply that if one does not feel particularly tired, there would be no need to have a day of rest.
As individual members of the body of Christ and as the collective whole of his people who come together as his church, we should be anticipating; experiencing the feeling of excitement about this glorious event that is on the calendar of the Father (Matthew 24:36). The return of Jesus is an event promised by Jesus himself around which there should be great expectation and anticipation, both personally and corporately.
Our big prayers to our big God are primarily for the fame of his name. Prayer is an opportunity to partner with God in his work with the ultimate goal of his glory. We are in a great season to look at all that is going on for us as a church and bring it before God in prayerful dependence.
