5.22.15–>”Should We Sit & Pray?”

A quick detour from Hebrews

I’ve just been thinking this week about people I’ve read about whose lives are characterized by spiritual power. They have a couple of things in common.

They’re sold out surrendered to God, meaning, they’ve given up all that could be in the way or a hindrance to their relationship with God.

And they pray for hours a day. I mean they sit before God and pray, much of it in worshipful silence. I’m not sure I know anyone who does this. Consequently, I’m not sure I know anyone whose life is characterized by spiritual power.

Would it do us any good to set aside an hour or more a day to just sit with God while doing nothing else?

Or is that a waste of time.

Does that not work anymore.

It’s 2015, we have so much more important stuff to do than sit around.

There’s no time for that.

Does anybody want to experiment and try it? Clear out the hindrances and dedicate large amounts of time to just sit with God? Is there a point? Would anything change?

Are we missing out on another way of living?

These are my questions.

What if we in ministry spent more time in prayer than actual “ministering?” Is that wrong?

In the Name of Jesus,
Soli Deo Gloria
