Our frustrations with prayer are caused by our misconceptions
So many false ideas about prayer out there.
1. Prayer is NOT a magic wand!
Not an enchanted tool you wave like Harry Potter to change your situation!
Not a magic bottle you rub & God comes out to fulfill every desire “Your wish is my command!” God is not your Genie
Not a secret incantation – special words used to get your own way
“Abracadabra! You’re now a good husband!”
“Hocus Pocus! Give me the promotion!
2. Prayer is NOT a fire extinguisher!
Break glass & use only in an emergency
Only for desperate situation Get bad news: start praying! Hurricane coming! “God if you get me out of this mess..!”
Treated as a LAST RESORT “All we can do now is pray” Has it come to that? Talking to God is not just for emergencies!
