The only thing i like about lllllooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnggggggg prayers is that i get to rest my head on the chair and get some lost sleep, because prayers are very similar
So let me sing for the love
Let me love for the lost
Let me lose all I have
For what I found on the cross
Let me trust you with my life
Let me live to give you praise
Lord, let me praise you
For the grace by which I'm saved
Lord, let me sing

- Chorus of "Let me sing" by Andrew Peterson

i just realized that it isn't the prayers that get me. i like praying and talking to God about stuff but when its other people praying for hours i get kinda bored 'cause i can't relate...not sure if that makes sense :S i guess its kind of like talking on a phone directly to someone on the other end compared to watching someone talk on the phone and you not knowing whats going on...

I know, I agree lol!! I mean praying for 5 minutes is fine, but after tha
t I think is a little too long if you are praying out loud.
Blessed Assurance! Jesus is mine!

Um... people have A LOT to thank God about..
How about waking u up this morning...
Making all 200+ bones in your body work together perfectly
.. or how about being cancer free..aand even if u have cancer. Amen that u got breathe in ur lungs.. and if u don't got breathe in ir lungs amen that u have a loving father whose coming back for you to take u home to heaven and show u amazing grace..

My point. Is that there is ALWAYS something to praise God about. :) so.. long prayers don't bother me. Becuase God is good.
And he should be thanked

The youth should learn how to pray and learn that you can never spend too much time thanking him.. he doesn't say its too much time to wake u up in the moring

I understand what you are saying but in church people like to pray long becuase people feeling the holy spirit and this world we living is bad i could understand 10 to 5 minutes

I agree. Jesus actually tells us how we should pray in Matthew 6:5-15. He says that we should not be like the hypocrites, nor should we babble like pagans who use many words. We should be concise, precise, and respectful when we pray. Just remember God already knows what you need/want before you ask Him. :)

What you said about the lungs almost made me cry cause my friends mom died of cystic fibrosis a while ago... :( But I loved your illustration. :)

I also appreciate prayers that are just spoken and are not read from a piece of paper.... at least at my church its becoming more popular to read a prayer from paper... but i feel its more genuine when people just pray from their minds. :silly:

yeah...so prayers are long but sometimes they are very powerful. My dad prayers long sometimes [he is a pastor], but i have gotten used to it...and yes i fall asleep during evening worship prayer sometimes at home. but God doesn't mind the long prayers so why should we?
what i do sometimes to try not to let my mind wander during prayer is i listen to the prayer and try to understand what the person is saying. This may not help you but, it's just what i do.

You can pray long in public if you want to. I believe what Mrs. White meant was that you shouldn't pray a long prayer in public so you look like a very righteous person. That's hypocrisy.

Loooong Prayers 9 months 3 weeks ago #65722

If you ask me private and personal prayers can be as long as you want them to. But a long public prayer just bores people and should be kept short
I'm antisocial (sigh)
