It takes all kinds
Ephesians 6:18 GW Pray in the Spirit in every situation. Use every kind of prayer and request there is. For the same reason be alert. Use every kind of effort and make every kind of request for all of God’s people.
I believe in all kinds of prayers and it is sad to me that so many limit themselves to only a few types of prayers by their traditions. I was raised in a church were everyone prayed out loud at the same time. It was a wonderful time in my life and the power of those prayers were amazing. Other churches only pray silently when being lead in prayer. Yet others sing their prayers. Some only pray when standing while others kneel in prayer.
As I said before I believe in all kinds of prayers.
- I believe in everyone praying out loud simultaneously.
- I believe in silent prayer.
- I believe in whispering prayers.
- I believe in shouting prayers.
- I believe in standing prayers.
- I believe in kneeling prayers.
- I believe in lying face down prostrate before the Lord in prayer.
- I believe in writing prayers.
- I believe in reading prayers written by others.
- I believe in people taking turns leading in prayer.
- I believe in singing prayers.
Each has its own blessing attached. Let us be willing participants in all that God has for us.
