Why Pray? Because we need miracles more than we need strategies Because the world is a vacuum waiting to be filled Because the MTV generation is lost in space Because we’ve seen the end of the movie Because this is not the dress rehearsal Because the poor are getting poorer Because we’re aliens in the world Because we’re too sensible Because boredom is sin Because he’s worth it Try it! When we run out of things to say that is when we really start to pray.Not only is prayer beginning to be offered creatively, it is beginning to pop up like convenience stores. I recently passed a church that now occupies a former bank branch. Instead of drive through tellers, it offers drive through prayer from 9:00 PM to 1:00 AM on Friday nights. The award-winning 24-7 Shorts is worth viewing, as well as how prayer is being employed in other nations.
