The Right Way to Pray?
The Brooklyn Tabernacle, a 3,500-seat evangelical prayer palace in downtown Brooklyn, was built in 1918 as one of the largest and grandest vaudeville houses in North America. It is still a hot ticket. Its youngish, racially diverse congregation packs the pews each week to praise God and bask in the sounds of a Grammy-winning 250-voice gospel choir. But the tabernacle is more than just a popular church. It is also a destination for evangelicals from all around the United States and beyond, laymen and ministers alike, who come as acolytes to study prayer.

“Prayer is like other activities,” the Rev. Daniel Henderson told me when we met at the tabernacle the week before Easter. He was visiting Brooklyn with a group of seminary students from Virginia. “You learn from people who are already good at it,” he went on. “The people who pray at the Brooklyn Tabernacle are committed. Praying with them is an ...

If you read the whole article in the New York Times, it makes a pluralistic survey of various prayer approaches that include Evangelical, Pentecostal, Anglican, Catholic, Jewish, and even gay perspectives. As the title implies, the article implies a relativistic stance against absolute truth and a right way to pray.

The article advocates that "you learn from other people" but it is best to follow the best examples. Psalm 1 advocates that we "walk not in the counsel of the ungodly" but rather delight in the law of God and meditate in it day and night. The Bible teaches us much about God. As we get to know someone, we learn about the best way to approach them.

I first heard about Jim Cymbala and the Brooklyn Tabernacle some time ago and read "Fresh Wind Fresh Fire" at the time.

A lot has changed since that time.

Apparently as the BT grew it seems they also began to be drawn into evangelical compromise with assciations with individuals like Rick Warren and Falwell. I have to think this kind if thing has to hinder theirs or anyones praying.

Apparently, God didn't like the comments about prayer? There are right and wrongs ways in approaching Prayer. Apparently this fellow has found one of the wrong ways.

From the article:
"(Henderson was also a contributor to the magazine Pray!, which recently went out of business.)"

Assuming he prayed for the success of the magazine, I wonder if he noticed that his prayers were answered in the negative?

"“Prayer is like other activities,”....
You learn from people who are already good at it,”"

I never trust someone who boasts about THEIR abilities in God's works.

So when I read this quote....
"Henderson is a peppy, unassuming man in his early 50s, a Jerry Falwell-trained Baptist minister"

I knew I was on the right track here too!

GOD teaches
Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."

Humility is a much more powerful medium in prayer.
