This Will Really Make You Think About Prayer

Okay, first of all, what I’d like to know is how did the creators of this video get inside my prayer time with Jesus? It’s uncanny! And the guy’s name is Chuck!  Pretty ironic all things considered, but believe me, once you watch this Just-Because-Monday video I think you’ll agree, the point is well made.

For some folks prayer can be a tricky thing. For some people prayer is simple: just talk with God. For others prayer can seem intimidating, or complicated, because they just don’t know where or how to begin. Some folks like rote memorized prayers. Others are comfortable thinking about prayer as a conversation with God. Still others use meditation.

Earlier on the blog I posted some prayers and ideas to help jump-start your conversation with God. (See “Prayers and Praying”) But today’s video will show an example of the type of one-sided prayer we can all fall in to.

May we all find the  time to listen to God in prayer; to sit quietly in God’s presence and allow God to speak to our very spirit.

I’m praying for you, thanks for praying for me as well.

Peace friends,

Chuck

    This is a LOL scenario! Regretfully, it probably occurs very frequently. Let me quote a well-known Carmelite priest in the area. He urges us to “sit down and shut up:” when praying.

    I LOVE THIS…it helps me focus on how important it is to be truly focused in my prayer time even if it’s ever so brief.
