Prayer Abuse: 

Most people are ‘foxhole pray-ers’, crying out in the midst of disaster: “Lord, if only you’d get me out of ….. I promise to do …. !”  And if we’re not making deals with God, we’re treating the Divine like some sort of Santa Claus for adults: “I want, I want, I want ….”.  Oftentimes prayer is confused with magic – passionately stringing together the proper words into incantations in hope of conjuring up the power to realise our desires.
