What’s your prayer life like?
Hopefully, as Christians, prayer has an important place in our everyday life. Unfortunately many Christians today may not have biblically considered prayer in a substantive way. Sometimes sermons and books on prayer may focus on formulas for how to receive things we personally desire or may encourage us to just speak to God about our daily life and cares. But are these kinds of approaches to prayer appropriate? Does anything go when we pray or does the bible give us specific direction regarding what God expects in prayer? For instance, how long should our prayers be? Or, how does God answer prayer? Are there things we can and can’t or should and shouldn’t pray for? Are there things we can do to help ensure that our prayers will be answered or that prevent our prayers from being answered? How do we make sure that our prayers are appropriate and pleasing to God?
