Study: Americans pray just to get through the day
Politicians come and go, fashions evolve and the culture shifts with alarming frequency. One thing remains constant, though: Americans pray. A lot.

Ninety percent have a spiritual interlude with God every day, according to a study released Thursday by Brandeis University. Half pray several times a day, in fact.

"Most prayer writers imagine a God who is accessible, listening, and a source of emotional and psychological support, who at least sometimes answers back," said Wendy Cadge, a sociologist who directed the research. ...

It's amusing how God is supposedly answering prayers from both heathens and professing Christians, yet many times those answers not only contradict one another but the holy scriptures as well.

I also find the common "I pray (look-at-me)" statement disturbing since it's rooted in pride, especially when someone informs another that he is praying for him. Is God's answer contingent upon the prayee being told that he is being prayed for? What's the point?

Moreover, ever hear a professing Christian boast that he was fervently praying and praying with all his heart about whatever and that God has spoken and revealed the answer? What this means is that if a Christian happens to disagree with the alleged answer, then that Christian is at odds with Almighty God! You see how that works.

Finally, have any of you noticed from the prayer warriors that an answer from the Lord that doesn't agree with the heart is not from the Lord after all, but from the devil? And then the better answer is cleverly worked out and justified.

The practice of the presence of God. Way to go, Mary.

"Ninety percent have a spiritual interlude with God every day, according to a study released Thursday by Brandeis University. Half pray several times a day, in fact."

Wow!! How about that?
I didn't know that the U.S. of A. was 90 percent Christian.

Proverbs 15:29 The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.

Proverbs 28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
