    Do you agree that a good prayer life should be both "Proactive" as well as "Reactive?"

    This may be a 'duh' moment, but what exactly do you mean by Proactive and Reactive?

    (It could also be that I've been up all night...)

    Proactive prayer is praying prior to a potential problem. In cowboy and Indian days, it would be called "Heading 'em off at the pass!"

    Reactive prayer is what we do after the fact.

    Example. When a person asks for prayer because they are facing surgery, we offer Proactive prayer. When a person suddenly passes away, we offer Reactive prayer.

    Nother form of Proactive prayer is praying for souls, or the Lord's immediate return!

    I hope that helps.

    My fellow pastor in Zambia uses this to describe prayer, and I sort of like it! I thought I'd pass it on to you here in the states! :thumbs:

    Gotcha. I vote both, but there are other types of prayers that need to be made as much or even more.
