Prayer is a tricky form of communication.
God wants a you to give before granting your need. It is a soul sacrifice. Don't take it easy.

It's always good and proper to give praise first which is not really asking much , all things considered. ~

And certainly helps if the need lines up with God's Will which is why it's important for us to have a mind of Christ.

Re: Prayer is a tricky form of communication.
Prayer is merely asking his will be done through you, opening yourself as a vessel to the divine

Thats why scripture says don't pray like the gentiles, pray using the lords prayer

Asking god for things in prayer will get you nowhere, asking to be gods vessel and that his will be done through you is the intention

GOD granting your specific needs is a miracle



of course this is just my interpretation

That's pretty good. And it's don't pray like the hypocrites.

Intercessory prayer is very necessary too, praying for someone else.

Matthew 6:5


“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.

Later in that passage

When you pray, do not babble repetitiously like the Gentiles, because they think that by their many words they will be heard. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Can we both be right?

Re: Prayer is a tricky form of communication.
There's a thin line between prayer and wish craft.

I only pray to support someone, not to wish them to change.

Prayer in rehearsed fashion as you have all been taught. No prayer on your own on your own terms? Are you you?

Re: Prayer is a tricky form of communication.
I was trained, then forced, to say the "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep" prayer every night by my mother.


The prayer creeped me out so much as a little girl, what with it talking about dying while asleep and someone taking my soul....but I had a kind of fundamental awareness, even as a little girl, and I did not want to be saying those words.


I mean, I told my mom I didn't want to say the prayer, and she stood there to make sure I did, every night, until my father made her stop.


I only just made my peace with praying about two years ago, and I'm nearing 62.


They become important, our prayers, when they're done properly.....but too many people just use them.

Re: Prayer is a tricky form of communication.
Hey, I was there and did that, but I diverted to contact God directly. Guess what, God responded in a way only me and it/she/he can understand as real. Try it for yourself.

You are what you are, you are not like anybody else.

My parents said that prayer with me every night also, are your parents weirdo narcissists too? I hated saying it. I used to often lay in bed as a kid thinking how messed up they were.

Lord knows if it wasn't for their self serving attitudes making them think their status in the church would benefit them, I would have never spent my life seeking the truth.

They are now both currently insane, I wouldn't trust them with a lawnmower, somehow I made it out without being a retarded psychopath. I'll give them their credit where its due, I forgive them.
