In Japan a Buddhist priest, Joei Yoshikuni has a pet black and white, one and a half year-old Chihuahua named Conan. Conan follows his master around and sits with him while he's praying at the altar of Shuri Kannondo temple in Naha, the capitol city of the southern Okinawa prefecture (state).

With no urging, Conan has learned how to imitate his master saying his prayers; sitting on his haunches with his paws together in front of his face as if he's praying too. Who knows for sure whether Conan is actually saying doggie prayers or just trying to please his master?

Your post shows me that you are sincerein your heart.  You must be one who acknowledges the sovereignty of God.  If so, you are praying without show.  Some pray for show; others pray continuously in their heart by the way they act.  God reads hearts not just lips.  Me too, I see that some people are prone to show they are praying and others to come to the front to pray for others or to crowds.  You cannot be one of such.

  Wow , good posts  :HeartThrob:   
 
   much to think on  Lonely summer and Leli
 
  Jesus  did not say everyone come with me to pray to the Father  , the verse in Matt 14  made me think
  though they did all pray at the passover meal ,  bread  being his  body and blood the new wine
 

  Jesus set an example in this verse I noted a long while back  about the sincerity of prayers
  seems we groan within oursleves and the Spirit intercedes  for us when we dont know how to pray  over some things  , God's will being  the best   thing  done in it 
 
 but anyways here it is  ..

 Mat 14:23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

I hope it didn't appear I was making fun of my friend for doing the silent "grace" or prayer before our meal. I'm really just laughing at my own lack of understanding it at the time. I think whatever way you choose to do it is beautiful; some folks have a more obvious expression of faith; others are more subtle.

 :cloud9: We enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise.......we are to thank Him for our daily provision of bread and wine in whatever form it takes. Blessings...

Yes, praying can be a ritual.  Or, it can be time that I just open up and be "in His presence" and let it flow.  Seems to me like my best prayers are when He "puts the words in my heart" to share with Him.  Communicating.  Otherwise I definitely can get into the flesh and struggle with "trying to perform", i.e., do what I think I'm "supposed" to do.
Neither should there be vulgar speech, foolish talk, or coarse jesting--all of which are out of character--but rather thanksgiving.  Eph. 5:4  **  Saved 1John 3.2, Eph. 2:8, John 1:12 - Being saved 2Cor. 4:16 2Peter 3:18 - Will be saved 1Peter 1:5 Romans 8:23

The class on prophecy has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances.

was on a church marquee - don't know if they realized what they were really saying, but I thought it was humorous.

Don't you know I've always loved you
Even before there was time
Though you turn away
I'll tell you still
Don't you know I've always loved you
And I always will

Greater love has not a man
Than the one who gives his life to prove
That he would do anything
And that's what I'm going to do for you
