. Prayer is not a tug of war with God!
You have wear God down until he give in & gives you.
Beg – please, please, pretty please give me
Bargain – God, if you do this for me, I’ll do that for you
Bribe – make a sales pitch to God
We cannot keep on pestering and badgering God until he gives in
Prayer is not a ritual to relieve guilt!
You really blew it- sinned- so you have pay for it by praying a lot
Jesus specifically told us to NOT repeat the same thing over & over
MT. 6:7says “When you pray DO NOT use meaningless repetition
thinking that you will be heard for your many words.” (NAS)
Not mindless ritual…repeating clichés...over and over again.
