We interrupt this portion of the entertainment for this thought provoking question..... Does God honor half-hearted prayers? I have been so bogged down in things going on around me, and just trying to get through each week, that I find myself just tossing prayers up to Heaven. I'm asked to pray for people, and I do, and I care, but I only give it a quick shot and then I move on. Does God hear this and say, "Child, you aren't paying attention. You are only giving this lip service. Come back and try again later." ????? Or does He honor the fact that you actually made the effort to lift someone's name up to him in a rush? Not wanting to forget them, but not giving them a real space in your prayer time? I know we don't have to spend hours on our knees for God to hear us and answer. And I know we are supposed to be in constant prayer and that a quick thought to Him is worthy. But, is it worthy to just rush through something like a prayer request? Tell me your thoughts on this people. Inquiring minds want to know.
