Think how many of our public prayers are indefinite, not asking anything of God and not getting anything! For example, the secretary of a preacher in an Illinois city not long ago told how the minister who employed her had already written out his public prayers for the next four months! So not in one of those prayers would the preacher be praying, “Heavenly Father, save my next-door neighbor who is here today.”
Dr. Rice is one of my Pastor's heroes and the book is dynamite. It was originally copyrighted in 1942 and is considered by many as the authoratative book on prayer. Our church bookstore got in a fresh shipment and I got a nice hardbound copy.
Now I am suppose to tag five people but I am offering a general self tag. If this meme appeals to you then feel free to be tagged. The meme instructions are here. If decide to play let me know in the comments.
