Some Extra Thoughts on Prayer

Here's some leftovers after my longer post.

I’m amazed at how few Christian adults are comfortable praying out loud. (Ask a room full of happily chatting people at a church if anyone would like to pray:  It will go dead silent and everyone will drop their eyes to the floor.)

I’m also amazed at how naturally comfortable some kids are with praying. Without any hesitation whatsoever I’ve seen 6 year olds pray in front of a group of 100 people. 

There’s a big difference between saying prayers and actually praying. If we're honest, most of us toe the line more than we might want to admit.

There’s something both powerful and peaceful about taking the time to pause in the middle of an insane crazy day and say “Let’s pray.”  Don’t believe me?  Try it.
