A Meditation on Praying

Gail Oliver Cambridge | May 1, 2021

There’s Power in Prayer!

Pastor James Thornton of the Salem Missionary Baptist Church in Brooklyn asked me to share a recent meditation I did on praying during a pandemic. He graciously allowed me to present it during the church service on Sunday, April 18, 2021.

We all have different formats when it comes to praying. I offered four approaches that can be incorporated into any style: acknowledge and reverence the Father when you go before Him in prayer; praise, worship, and thank Him; be bold and specific in your prayers while believing for a good outcome; and be patient but vigilant for the promise of the anticipated answer.

Note, I begin speaking at about 20 minutes into the video, but I hope you watch the entire service to enjoy the choir and listen to the message from Pastor Thornton titled “Jesus Cares.”
