Pray It, Don't Preach It

It really upsets me (probably a little more than it should) when people use prayer time to preach.  Prayer is an opportunity to come into agreement with God, a time to join up with Him to do great things that are on His agenda.  In our prayers to God, He loves to hear His word back to him, but so many times I hear not His word but the person’s praying words, thoughts, and opinions.   I’m praying for compassion for those that make this mistake, but it has really hit a sore spot.  The church today does not pray nearly enough, but then when she does, she waste vital time praying horizontally to influence others rather than vertically.  If you want to do that, get a blog.  Don’t waste the powerful eternal appointment of prayer.

Ok, I’m off it…
