Things NOT to think about when being prayed for.

Things NOT to think about when being prayed for.

So you’re there.

You’re either at church, homegroup, or some other christian gathering, and you’re being prayed for. You may be surrounded by a group of people, or you may be in a corner of a room, either way you are the focus of the spiritual attention. Whatever you do. Don’t think about the following when you’re being prayed for:

  1. How attractive that woman / man praying for you might be – and why are they holding your hand anyway?
  2. Has the oven timer started ok? You dont want the dinner to be burnt / cold.
  3. Why is that persons hand so warm and clammy?
  4. Why does that person push down on your shoulder so hard?
  5. Rating peoples prayers out of 10. Don’t do this. Its not cool.
  6. Who’s that smell?
  7. “What on earth did they mean by that?”
  8. Mentally correct their grammar in your head.
  9. Whats the most prayerful way to be standing? Are you in the most holy position? Does God smile more with my arms up or my arms down?
  10. The feeling of regret that comes with having that hot curry 45 minutes before the meeting began.

Any more that you can suggest?

#RandomPhotoMoment 1

So I figured, that in an attempt to break up the silliness around here, I’d share a photo of life away from silly church blog things.

Until I come up with a better name for this, I’ll call it the #RandomPhotoMoment – I’d say its weekly, but we all now how well that goes*.

Taken in Haldon Forest here in Devon, I wondered if I had found a new happy place. (I guess I might need a holiday or something if I’m looking for “happy places”).

Where’s your happy places? Do you have any?

*weekly stuff doesn’t often happen weekly.
