I just read an articles from Brad Ruggles (head on over and read it, I’ll be here when you get back) about a new iPhone app that allows you to insert the names of your family members and it will generate specific prayers for you to pray…
Our 3 year old prays for dinner and it is basically the same prayer every day because it is the prayer I pray for my food and he loves to pray so before we eat, we all grab hands and Caleb prays “God, thank you for this food, please bless it to our bodies, Amen.” Pretty simple, pretty boring, but I love the fact that my son is already developing a prayer habit. His prayers are simple and straight forward but they work.
There are two sides to the coin with this app. One, it will probably help people have a better prayer life, but two, how would my wife feel if I had a friend write a script for me to take home and read to my wife when I got home from a day full of meetings?
OK, it’s your turn, what do you think? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments.
