Prayer lessons from the movies

01 May 2016, 16:51 Sam Wanjere

For the movie buffs among us, Bruce Nolan is a down-on-his-luck reporter who complains to God that He is failing in His job. He is unexpectedly offered this very job for a week. Amongst many selfish uses for his newfound power, one of his more innovative ideas is creation of a computerized email-like system for answering prayer, which needless to say does not quite work according to plan.

The movie is Bruce Almighty, quite a useful insight into our general prayer lives. Have you ever thought much about why many of our prayers go unanswered?

Our Approach

Whining is spending more time complaining, finger-pointing, generally nitpicking. We blame rather than state what our actual issue is.

Another issue is arguing back with the Creator rather than trust Him to assist. Included, here is suggesting what we wish for versus listening to what we are required to do. In other words, we know better than our would-be Helper.

A sense of entitlement is one where you feel you have earned the right to your petition based on some previous record. This could include the fact that you help the poor or give faithfully.

The End

Ultimately, what sobers power-mad Bruce Nolan is a prayer from his girlfriend to fall out of love with him. It is enough to ask God to take back His powers.

For the believer, it is enough to ask in concise terms. Be direct and clear, all done in a spirit of humility. Trust and patience is paramount in all these. Trust implies you are ready to comply with all that is asked of you. How would you feel if the person asking you for help also extends his request to several others?

Your attitude ultimately shapes resultant success.
