Prayer revolution

We need one.

With just 90 verses in the Bible about music and 375 about prayer, we are long overdue for a cultural revolution in the way we pray—not just in order to keep up with the changing times, but also … to be truly biblical in the ways in which we wait upon God. — Pete Greig, Red Moon Rising

It’s interesting, isn’t it, that so much effort and energy has been poured into being on the cutting edge of worship the last few decades… but far fewer people have pursued Christ’s coattails in prayer. Is it too mystic and ethereal? Too hard? Or is it just not a priority? Do we not believe prayer works?

Well, the good news is that the revolution is coming. God wants to hear from us; He wants to commune with us; and He’s sending people with understanding to teach us how it works.

Interesting topic. I like the way God puts something in front of me till I notice.

I have a tendency to think a time and place has to be perfect before I attempt to do it. This prayer subject has been on my heart for some time. I believe God just wants me to do it. Commune with him!

At Faculty/Staff conference this year a book was introduced.
“Take Our Moments and Our Days”
An Anabaptist Prayer Book
And now you have introduced this subject.

I’m sorry God that at times you need to hit me over the head. Lets just get to praying.

Hmmm… something is fishy with my blog. I’m no longer getting e-mail notifications of new comments… Sorry that my attention toward comments has been poor the last while.

Aunt Loretta: Glad to hear the Lord used my blog to grab your attention. It takes a while sometimes, doesn’t it? But as I’ve been coming to realize: nothing about the Lord’s pursuit of us surprises me any more. He’s just relentless. And He’s creative. And he’s so loving.
