The “withering the giant in his tracks” is the kind of praying that I’m after. Learning how to open a can of (well you know what) all over the devil is my petition. And along with all of the “Atomic praying” I want to discover the kind of communication with God that feels like I’m talking to my best friend.
You gotta get gutsy. You gotta look at apparent failure (when you thought you offered your best prayer and nothing happened), realize failure is only failure if you quit, and pray again….maybe smarter this time because you take another approach that you’ve learned from experimenting a bit…or alot.
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.”
So, instead of whining, “God doesn’t answer my prayers…boo hoo,” refuel yourself with Scriptures that deal with God’s answers to your issues, ask the Holy Spirit for some wacky strategy and jump in the pool in the deep end, again.
- Sing your prayers for awhile
- Write them in the form of poems…even if it doesn’t seem like very good poems.
- Pray early before the day begins
- Pray late after the busy-ness has taken a break for another day
- Walk around the block
- Walk in the woods
- Talk to God when you’re mowing the grass, or doing dishes
There are as many legitimate ways to communicate as there are stars in the heavens, and as many authentic styles as there are grains of sand on the seashore.
THE IMPORTANT PART: Try 2, 4, 10, or 20 until you find something that works for you.
Have you found something that works especially well for you. Share it here. It may be the very thing someone else that’s reading this hadn’t thought about…they try it….it changes everything for them. And, it doesn’t have to be profound. Something simple is often the Master Key.
