Prayer Postures

I love this picture anyway I was the camp pastor at a local camp this past week. Part of my duties was to lead worship with my wife (who we all know is the real worship leader). Anyway, I thought I would experiment with the relatively conservative audience. In the morning worship gatherings I took the people through a journey of prayer postures.
I have been influenced by numerous authors and books, including scripture!!!!

So not knowing if this was going to work, I closed my eyes and went for it…boy was I surprised…I thought that most people would think that this was “New Agey” or just a gimmick. I was wrong many people loved it. I was especially surprised to see how many people participated in the posture of kneeling, even head to the ground posture. It got me thinking….maybe the charismatic, evangelical culture is desiring something more rich in their faith?

So my plan is to post on this blog a seven day session of prayer postures, scripture readings followed by a prayer. These can be used in any gathering of believers. What I discovered was the richness of both the postures, the reading of scripture and the heart felt prayer.

At the Lake

Need a break? I do! So I will post next week.

Wednesday, July 05, 2006


What a weekend. After our gatherings were over on Sunday, the fam and I went to the lake. Yes, there was a lot to do, but we had a blast. Great weather, great friends and a great time. We just got off the water and had to come back to the city. I love Manitoba summers!

I also had the opportunity to spend time with some long lost friends. It is really cool to run into people who had made influential impact in my life, only to have them say the same to me. I love the fact that there are people who GOD brings across our paths in a point in time and they continue to bless you, even when you have not seen them for a while.

Who have been the people who had been a tremendous influence in your life? What is your story?
