Are You Missing the Point of Prayer?


 Prayer changes things us!

Prayer changes us on the inside, alters the way we think about things, what we think about and our attitudes toward things. The point of prayer is not to get things from God, but to open ourselves up to Him - to get to know Him - to allow Him to change those things in us that hinder our spiritual walk with Him.

Point to Ponder: Do I spend way more time in prayer trying to get God to change my circumstances or allowing Him change my character?

What Penn Gillette (atheist) thought when someone gave him a Bible.


 What do you think avowed atheist, Penn Gillette thought about the man who gave him a Bible. Did he get angry? Tell the guy off? Laugh in his face?  Watch this video and find out...


The key was the man's sincerity, his caring attitude and his conviction that if a man is lost, the love of Christ within us should compel us to reach out with the truth.

Maybe we should care more about a man's destiny than what he might think of us if we shared our faith in a loving, non-confrontational way.

What do you think? Would you reach out to an atheist in love?
