Experimenting With Prayer (1)

Prayer.  We’re supposed to do it.  We want to do it (to one degree or another).  But…if honest, most of us would say that we don’t feel we’re very good at it; Or, even understand it.   So….I have a brilliant solution 🙂   Let’s experiment…

Ummm….is that okay with God? Isn’t prayer something that is too holy to play with?

“No.  As a matter of fact, I think God wants us to “play/experiment” with prayer. Frankly, it is a great way of demonstrating a desire to get good at our relationship with Him.

In discussing this subject with men in my church, the common consensus was that prayer events were pretty much designed by and for WOMEN.  Not that that is automatically a bad thing!  It simply ignores that fact that men and women relate differently on a social level. And, therefore, men relate to God differently than women do.  Related Examples:

  • Women are talkers for the pure enjoyment of talking “In Details” with each other
  • Men are doers and only talk in “Headlines” and only speak enough to get the job done

They felt that this carries over into a “prayer life.”
