“Prayer Tweets”

I’ve started prayer tweeting.

If you haven’t you are so behind the eight ball. Nah not really, but I would suggest giving it a try.

Here is what it means to “prayer tweet” in three easy steps

1. Pray regularly. Whenever you recognize a need or a blessing, pray.

2. Keep it short. One or two sentences max.

3. Each time you “prayer tweet” spend a minute or two reflecting on what it is that your are tweeting about and God’s involvement in that.

See, here’s the deal. If you are like many people, including myself, sitting down and praying for extended periods of time is a HUGE challenge. Life is busy, our minds wander and we end up forgetting why we’re praying in the first place and what the significance of prayer is.

However, prayer tweeting keeps you in prayer all throughout the day.

“Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

  1. I like this. I, too, will start tweeting. šŸ™‚

  2. Well – this is great, David – although I don’t and have never (as far as I know) “tweeted” but there is always a first time. Good thoughts šŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing.

  3. In the old days, we called these “arrow prayers.” You quickly shoot a prayer to God as some need or blessing crosses your path. I guess I need to get with the new terminology!!
