I beleive in prayer...but what do I beleive in prayer? This question was raised in coversation with a minister this evening.
What are we to expect, hope for, through prayer?
We agreed that the prayer meeting is least attended in a church week, not because people dont beleive in prayer...they kinda do, but arent sure how or what they should beleive about it.
Is their need of a revival of a theology of prayer in our churches? If soo, what would that theology look, sound, like?
How do we teach prayer? encourage others to do it? Surely we can see that reason prayer meetings are badly attended is because prayer is unexciting to many beleivers. We are excited about worship songs, certain teachers, etc etc, but where is our excitment for prayer?
What is our theology of prayer? How do we get folks excited about prayer? the prayer meeting?
Over to you folks, be interested in your thoughts.
