A new way to pray

Recently some of the Sunday night group I meet with met to discuss how we can improve our meeting time together. It seems we have many people who are very needy and seem to look at the glass half empty rather then half full.Prayer time has become a time of many needs and not to many praises.
One of the ladies in the group told us how she had the high school youth group have a time of praise only at prayer time. (no needs or wants praises and thanksgiving only).
What a wonderful idea this is so I decided to try it myself at prayer time.I have been praying thank you for this and that instead of I need and want.It is amazing after a while how it becomes so much easier.Turning a negative into a posative is a wonderful way to pray.
On my next blog I will share with you how I have been able to turn a negative time in my life into a posative and reach out to others. I can now say a prayer of thanks for this time.
Tune in tomorrow for how and what it was.
LOLOLOLOL the suspence thickens!!!!!
Almost as exciting as one of Becky's polls.

Gosh Brian - I'm going to have to check while we're at hockey just to see what it is!!! What a great idea though - we all need to hear that!
