I loved being invited to the prayer meeting before Church when I first came to know Jesus personally. We would pray around in a circle one at a time. It was great and I learned the many ways that people prayed, some long and fancy with “Thees” and “Thys” all through them and others just like a conversation with a friend. I loved it all. Some people were there to impress other people or because they just loved to pray in public I’m sure, but mostly it was just talking to God. It was great.


I love the fact that Jesus expects us to pray. He says “When you pray...” The expectation is that believers pray. That just goes with the territory. We take time to pray. We get alone and get with God, undisturbed by trying to make an impression on others and we pray (Matthew 6:6).
