Our Sunday School class is studying a book on prayer by Philip Yancey. We had an intriguing discussion this morning on “Why pray?” Now, I know all the “reasons.” Without getting into all the technicalities of it, here are a few of the things that rambled through my mind.
  • We should pray in the context of relationship rather than as completing a formula (prayer is not “how to get things” it’s “how to know God.”)
  • We have to pray in God’s Will (it’s always His will to save the lost, strengthen Christians in trials, etc. )
  • Prayer/Intercession will not override another person’s free choice (some things happen because another person made a wrong choice. God will help me cope with the results and stay with me through anything, but He will not cancel another’s right to choose)
