"Battle" of the Prayers...what do you think? Warren / Robinson / Lowery...
It seems that even as there is some discussion about who likes which prayer best, the fact that different prayers appeal to different people points to the diversity of people and also the diversity of God's tastes! God, of course, hears all prayers, and whether or not they tickle our fancy, they are heard by God.
On the other hand, taking a look at (and listen to) these different prayers can give us some sense of the different ways that we understand prayer, theology, God, prayer, and the rest.
What do you think? What is the theology behind them? What is their image of God? To what are they appealing, emotion, or reason? Which one 'rings true' to you...why, do you think? Similarities and Differences?
Come to class on Thursday and be ready to discuss! (or, comment!)
