So unplug, unwind, un-whatever-it-is-you’re-doing and prepare to spend some quality time with the Lord.
We’ll start today with a pair of prayers from someone the Bible refers to as a “man after God’s own heart” – David:
So, how should we pray? First, let’s start with how NOT to pray:
- Don’t do it for show. Jesus said: “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men.” (Matthew 6:5)
- Don’t babble. Jesus also said: “And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like the pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.” (Matthew 6:7)
So how SHOULD we pray?
It’s PRAYER-O-RAMA 2017 here on GUWG. Monday, we started with the WHY of prayer. Tuesday, we focused on the WHO. Yesterday, we covered the WHAT. Today, in honor of the National Day of Prayer, we’ll discuss WHERE and WHEN to pray.
So, WHERE should we pray?
That answer’s simple: everywhere.
The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray. (Samuel Chadwick)
