Prayer meetings and worship gatherings are so different all over the world. Some are very quiet and reverent, there are long pauses between prayers, and words are very carefully chosen, and are sometimes spoken in a monotone.
Sometimes when life gets busy, we end up running and running and we can become numb to the most important things. When we go to a football game and there’s no passion for either team, when there are emotional struggles and we don’t even cry, when we are so focused on doing things that our heart grows hardened. We can flatline. We end up doing more than being.
Prayer is powerful. When we pray demons flee. When we pray, God opens heaven and pours out blessings. When we pray, God changes things and we change too! God covets our prayers.
As a nation of fast food lovers, are we really worshiping God with our bodies?
