Are You Ever An ‘Airhead’ While In Prayer, Or Are Those A ‘Trance’ Or ‘In The Spirit’?
I’m just asking a question here folks, I’m definitely not trying to be judgmental. But once in a while do you find that while in a quiet personal prayer, that your mind has wondered? Had skipped away in total accident with no wish or intent, to someplace else in your mind? You know that of all times that you/I would always want to be at our best spiritual, physical and mental behavior is when we are having a ‘private moment’ with God, right? When I have done that, skipped off somewhere else in my mind while in prayer, up till this evening I have been upset with and/or disappointed with myself when I realize what I had done, again. I have wondered sometimes if this is what some folks refer to as being in some type of trance, or is it being a stoner and zoning out? Or, is it possible that while in these quiet moments that while we were in prayer, that when this happens that we fell asleep? Whew, hope not. This is one of those cases where I cannot answer for other folks, this is a private individual thing between our self and God and most assuredly, He knows the answers. For the folks in the world that have no faith at all a good many of them must think that those of us who prefer to pray quietly several times a day are out of tune anyway. Yet for those of us who do believe in a loving and all-powerful God and Creator of all of us, faith is all we have got, yet it is all that we need, any of us. When we pray do we have the faith that we are communicating directly with God through His Own Spirit that indwells the Believers? So, how important is it when we are in a silent prayer with God? How important is it that we stay ‘on tune’ during those times? Well, I guess, that’s up to each one of us privately with ourselves, and of course, also on how it is that God looks at these mental phenomenons. This is just my thought for the evening, hope it gave you a thought or two as you were reading it.
