Greetings John and Doves,I just happened to take a close look at watch and pray in Luke 21:36 and noticed 68 different times the word pray is used in the New Testament. There are several meanings and the one in Luke 21:36 is a rare use. It is Strong's G1189 and can mean to beg. This gives a new Light on the word and since no-one is really worthy, I've decided to beg I be counted worthy to escape this trap of destruction and go in the rapture. Just a thought<[:o)
