This is  the introductory entry for this web log and there are some things that I need to address: Prayer is a key ingredient to the life of the Christian and how we approach te Lord is important. I will say this- there is a right and wrong way to do this. I’m not going to get weird  about this either. Here’s a good example of what prayer is not:

  • Controlling- Like praying that will do something against a person’s will
  • Always formulaic e.g. a written prayer, a politically correct prayer that leaves out the name of Jesus out etc.
  • Praying to other deities other than Jesus Christ.
  • Praying that He will do something YOU WANT  that is not in the will of God.
  • Praying that God will harm somebody. God is loving and merciful.

There aer different types of prayer:

  • Intercession- Where you pray for somebody
  • Supplication-Where you make a request
  • Adoration- Where you’re just crazy about Jesus.  E.g. Hallelujah to Jesus!Thanksgiving
  • Praying in the Holy Spirit
  • Thanksgiving

I could go on and give you all this “technical jargon, but I heard something tonight that pretty much says it all and here it is:

If you are wondering what this is it’s Jim Cymbala’s testimony about his daughter and how prayer literally and spiritually pulled her away from a rebellious lifestyle. WOW!
