One thing I notice at church, on FB, and in society is the way many Christians pray. I also do this at times so I am not innocent and am guilty like the rest, but it seems as if prayer these days is always focused on the self and healing our wounds, getting what we want, and such. Very few pray as if they are Slaves of God. The Bible makes it clear that we are Slaves of God, and its not our will but His will. Jesus himself prayed the following in Matt 6:9-13 Do you pray this way? Charles Stanley wrote a book on prayer which I read in 2011 but can't remember all the details which I may need to check out again. From what I remember the book condemned the self-help and self-gratification focused prayers of today. While there is no harm to praying for ones business to succeed, praying for healing, praying to get a new car and such, biblically speaking our prayers should be God centered, which may be something like. So what say you on this topic? Lots and lots of books out there, but I only have the one by Stanley.
