MUSIC, LEADERSHIP, CULTURE… and humor (sometimes)

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!

    가끔 데니엘 싸이트에와서 글을 봅니다. 당신의 생각과 삶이 아름답다고 생각합니다.

    저는 요즘 실직 상태로 2개월 정도 지내고 있습니다. 16년동안 직장생활하면서 쉬지 않고, 남들과 함깨 휩쓸리듯이, 쫓기듯이, 채바퀴 돌듯이 달려온 삶을 잠깐 정지 상태로 지켜보고 있습니다. 누가 나를 고용해줘야지 나의 가치를 느꼈던 삶. 이건 아닌데 하는 생각과 함께, 이미 나의 생명 깊숙히 박힌 그 습성을 벗어 버리기가 쉽지 않네요. 하나님께 떨리는 마음으로 기도합니다. “직장 빨리 구하기 보다, 이런 나의 습성을 없애고 싶다고…”

    Sorry for writing in Korean, but I wanted to express my feeling as much as close to the real.

  2. I concur…but its hard sometimes without seeing this being modeled for us…I believe the holy spirit can reveal tho…but this does take some risks. It’s 기도파티 time
