What Not Pray?

We have a guest post today from Diane at An Extraordinary Day. Thanks for allowing us to print an excerpt. I am hoping all my readers continue on to Diane’s site to read the rest of this wonderful post.

What Not Pray?

by Diane

Have you ever thought that you shouldn’t pray? (click to tweet)

Today I was reading my Streams in the Desert devotional and I came across this statement:

“It is better not to pray until your entire being responds to,
and understands, the power of prayer.”   ~ P. C. M.

What? Not Pray?

What?  Not pray? 

Aren’t we supposed to communicate with God? (click to tweet)

And isn’t the vehicle of communication prayer?

Thinking on this a bit more, I came to the realization that communication goes two ways.  Have you ever stopped to chat with someone and had them talk without seeming to breathe, so that you couldn’t respond in any way.  And when you tried to physically move on, the chatterer kept talking and followed you?  Ugh.  That is so frustrating.  I wonder if that is the way it is with us and God.  Do we just chatter on and on?

Pray?  Talk with God?
