The Technique of Prayer

There has been considerable debate in the blogosphere about what prayer techniques are acceptable for Christians. There are those who demand that we find biblical justification for any form of prayer.

With the exception of the “Our Father,” Jesus has little to say about the form of prayer. He has a lot to say about the attitude of prayer. But his message seems to be primarily, “Just do it.”

Of course, we need to always remember that prayer is spending time with the Father. It is not just a technique to relax or center ourselves. But it seems to me that if we spent more time with the Father, we would spend less time arguing with others about how they “do” prayer.

What do you think?
