Okay I will admit it, I opened my eyes during prayer in church.And counted how long the prayer was. 7 minutes!!!!! Really! I love God, but sometimes it seems like people get a little carried away! :dry:

Yeah, at one point, you start falling asleep during someone's prayers. This one person was taking care of my sister and I. At evening worship, the person prayed for what seemed like 20 minutes, and I fell asleep during the middle part, and woke up at the end. :blush:

...i agree but sometimes the holy spirit has to say some stuff through people.

3 minutes max before i start to zone out and think about random stuff like hiccups or something :lol: :)

i know people get filled with the Holy Spirit and stuff but i kinda wish they would take into consideration the younger people with the attention span of a squirrel. just my thoughts :)

@Godgirl7 Rofl So short. But 7 minutes is not even a lot compared to my intercessory prayers in church. About 30-40 minute prayers!!! I always fall asleep! ITS TERRIBLE! :( And that's why sometimes out program is extended, because of the prayer! I try to stay awake but i can't :( :( :(

I know just how you feel. I often open my eyes during prayer. I even use my dad's morning prayer for extra resting time :blush:

But, talking to God IS prayer. You can talk to your friends for hours but when it comes to God... "Plz bless this food. Amen."

I love God to but when people pray they take soooooooooooo long! I like Church but it's the same thing every time! First Sabbath School, then Song Service, then a SECOND Song Service! Then Prayer, opening song, another Prayer, then the morning prayer where everyone has to get down on their knees and close their eyes. My knees are always hurting and I still have to kneel on my sore knees! And it doesn't help when the prayer is 10 minutes long! It's the same agenda over and over again! I still like going to Church but I just wish they would add new things like special music by kids or something like that! :( :dry: :huh: :unsure: :ohmy: :blush: :S :whistle: :pinch:

It might be easier if we could actually see God and be able to talk to him in real time, without having to wait for a response. Honestly, if that were what happened, I would be able to talk to him for DAYS at a time non stop. But we can't see him, and we don't usually get our answers immediately so that limits kids' prayers to a couple minutes and adult prayers to 5-10 minutes averagely but I have seen a couple hour prayer on 3ABN.

Huh. Long prayers at CHURCH?! MY church's prayers can be 15 minutes long, and on top of that, The people who are praying (usually women) SCREAM and cry while they're praying. Then the whooollleeee church comes on, crying and such.... I know people can feel excited when talking to God, but I definitely like a more low-key style. Oh, AND I have to deal with it at home too. My dad preaches SERMONS in his prayers. But hey, at least he doesn't scream. :lol:

Same here. But what I do is that I try to guess what words the person will say next if I get bored. One day I slept during a 1 hour prayer and I was supposed to pray next and I was SUPEr embarrased. :oops: :oops: :oops: So I never slept during prayers EVER again! So I made a little fun game. Is it wrong to do that?? Now that I think about it I don't really think it's right. :blush: :blush:

I read in one of Ellen White's books that you should only pray about 5 minutes, when you have children. I think its fine if you want to pray longer by yourself, but with others its probably good to keep it on the short side.

My church actually made a rule that the prayer can't be more than five minutes long. There was some varying opinions on that, but I don't know if we still have that rule or not at the present. Our prayers are short and sweet. I haven't timed the prayers tho, I should do that! lol jk ;)
