Prayer is not about Method…

Prayer is not about Method…

It’s a foul and an error to say that those who “VIBRATE” while praying are not praying because Paul and Silas weren’t quietly praying while the gates of the prison opened, rather “in the middle of the night Paul and Silas were praying and singing God’s praises, while the other prisoners listened” (Acts 16:25).

So also it’s a foul and an error to say that those who SILENTLY pray are not praying because when Peter raised Dorcas from the dead, he only kneeled down, and prayed; and turning to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes and sat up.” (Acts 9:40).

Therefore, these are just METHODS.

In conclusion;

Prayer is not primarily about the METHOD; it’s primarily about LIFTING YOUR HEART TO GOD. Any method that genuinely helps you lift your heart to God is left for you.

However, as you adopt any method, make sure that it contains CHARITY.

CHARITY is love and it Is considerate of the neighbor, such that if while you pray to God, your neighbor can’t “PHYSICALLY” sleep because of your prayers, you are no longer praying. You have no LOVE.

If while you pray with others, and in the name of method, you can’t open your mouth to follow the community prayers, it’s deceit and contains no love. YOU have no LOVE.

Whoever fails to love does not know God, because God is love(1 John 4:8). If anyone says, “I love God,” yet [consider not] his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother. (1 John 4: 20-21)

While praying to God, “disturb” God, but be charitable to human beings.
