Just Pray

Praying – for others, for world events, for ourselves. There’s a lot to pray for.

We learn a lot about prayer from Jesus. Jesus took time to pray. Jesus went away to pray. Jesus taught about prayer. Jesus prayed for himself. Jesus prayed for others in need of healing. Jesus prayed for the city. Jesus prayed when times were difficult. Jesus prayed for his disciples. Jesus prayed a lot.

Sometimes we think we don’t know how to pray or that there is a certain way we must pray. We can think that we’re not doing it right, especially if it seems that our prayers are not answered. We give up pretty easily. We look at the short term and skip the big picture.

I wonder why we make prayer so difficult.

Prayer was part of the rhythm of Jesus’ days and it was intertwined within his days. He sometimes stopped what he was doing to pray, but often he prayed in the midst of what he was doing.

Let’s not make prayer difficult or rigid or formatted or foreign. Let’s just pray. For ourselves, for others, for the world.

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 as we gather to pray, worship, thank, praise, ask, listen and be in relationship.

Grace and peace,

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?

I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems
with your site. It looks like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else
please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to
them too? This may be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen before.
Thank you

Hi! Quick question that's completely off topic.
Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird
when browsing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a theme or
plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
If you have any recommendations, please share. With thanks!

Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd
figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or
maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog
discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you're interested feel free to send me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

(well, almost...HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more
than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
