For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end;  -- Hebrews 3:14
 There are some days where one simply doesn't know what to think or where to look for ambition or motivation.  My dad used to call those kind of days-- blah days.   Without inspiration one just slogs through the day and hopes for something brighter to come about tomorrow.  Rumor has it a lot of people in Seattle feel this way on many of the endlessly (it seems) gray showery days.

Spiritual connections ebb and flow.  Spirituality is tied in with tiredness and diet, in addition to one's emotional world's ups and downs.   Sometimes, a lot of times probably if one kept score, instead of being psyched and "up" we are more simply plodding and waiting.  Waiting on the Lord might be a good terminology to use.   If we looked at the "down" times we experience as "waiting times" maybe we would feel more active and engaged -- like we were actually doing something, even if we feel like slugs.  Waiting times can be moved into active praying times, and though we may not feel like doing anything, we CAN always pray.  There is no shortage of prayer needs, and I believe prayer reminds us to hold on as steadfast partakers with Christ for the care of the world.

Oh God, when sloth and disinterest take hold of us turn our minds and hearts toward those less fortunate and give us the words to pray.  In your name.  Amen.
