Re: How do we pray a prayer of Love?

I'm smiling because Brian told me to add the garden prayer which is exactly what you did...nice job.

So many times we pray for what we want to happen and forget what God wants.  For example, I usually and am currently praying for God to reveal Himself to whomever it is I am praying for in that situation.  Why?  Because God wants to be seen (not with fleshly eyes to quench anyone reading who wants to twist what I am saying)  The Lord's prayer shows us that we can pray the things we know God wants for us, like peace, provision, etc.  Likewise, Love has a purpose and that purpose is to bring reconciliation first to God then to others.

Some years ago, Brian got pneumonia (thankful for autocorrect on this one) When he stopped long enough to listen to God, he was made well...Sometimes and he would tell you this, God allows or causes illness in order to get our attention...that is why I often ask that God would be revealed in the situation.

Anyway, thanks
Someone told me something once that I hadn't thought of before. They said that if we pray for someone about a certain thing, without that person wanting or asking for prayer for what we believe they need help with, that we may be praying against their free will. It would be different if the person asked for prayer and stated exactly what they needed and wanted to be prayed for and are agreeable to be prayed for that reason. But people don't always want or need what we believe or think they want or need in way of prayer.

I may not have explained that very well.
I think it is more about what God wants for them but I get what you are saying.

I mentioned the young friend who has just had a very bad diagnosis.  I prayed that they would have peace.  Because of an emergency trip out of state, I asked her how she was doing, she said "surprisingly good"...God's will prayer into their life.

I have another friend who was telling me once about marriage problems, we prayed and I prayed that God would be revealed in  their marriage, to heal them so that they could testify to the beauty of God's Love....afterwards, she said to me, "I thought you were suppose to pray for what you want"...I told her I did for those were the things that God wants for them. Often times, our desires and God's will are in contrast with one another.  Thus the question, are our prayers covetous as in what we want, or are they yielding our wills to what God desires for us?  I have no problem saying, we would like you to X but it is when we pray peace, contentment, comfort, spiritual healing, etc. into their lives that we finally grasp "not my will but thine be done."

My two cents
