Prayer

Tonight I went to church expecting a study.  Well, it’s the new year and pastor is determined to have us being a praying church.  Which is fine, that’s what we are supposed to do, pray.  I did not grow up praying out loud a lot, with the exception of the standard Lord’s Prayer, Meal Prayer, and Bedtime prayer, which were always the same.  So, doing a prayer circle and praying open form, is very hard for me.  I’m just not used to it.

To ‘inspire’ us, I’m sure, pastor provided 102 quotes about prayer.  No, I’m not going to list all of them.  I will mention the first one, which is one of pastor’s favorites:

“You can do more than pray after you have prayed; but you can never do more than pray until you have prayed.” – A.J. Gordon

To me, that means to pray first and foremost.You can do plenty afterwards, but you can’t do more than praying until you have prayed.

Periodically, I’ll post one or two of the quotes, but tonight, I’ll leave it at just the one.

Pray first and foremost, then follow through.

Good night.
