Throw a Party. A Prayer Party.
My brother and hero Dave Gibbons is in town with a group of amazing men who have devoted their lives to making a difference in this world.
We spent our first night together pigging out to some tacos, churros, and hot chocolate.
We then spent time sharing our stories and listening to each other in our cafe.
We ended the night with a party. A prayer party.
That is correct, son! We were gettin’ down and dirty, wet and wild, boogeyin’ to the groovy beats of … love-rooted prayer for one another.
I’m not a religious person and I wouldn’t speak of such things if it was just a bunch of fluff . . . but this was good. It was a blast. It was warm. It was life-changing. It was real.
Don’t know how much you get to pray but I have a feeling your life would be different if you found a group of friends that you could do this with some day. . . and do it regularly. . . wherever you go.
I think preaching and singing can get sort of weird outside of the right context.
But prayer? Ain’t nothing wrong with prayer. Let’s face it! We could all use a little more prayer in our lives.
So how ’bout you host a Prayer Party the next time you want an excuse to get together with friends? Surround that time with good food, music and some booze if you had a rough week . . . but take turns laying hands on each other and praying with insight before you call it a night.
Trust me. You’ll be glad you did!
Let’s have a prayer party right HERE. How can this blog community pray for you? Anything goes as long as you’re comfortable sharing it!
