Notes on Prayer
"Forgive us Lord for holding hands with darkness. Forgive us Lord for idolatry. Forgive us Lord for playing games in your presence. We look for true intimacy" Psalm 2:12 Jason Upton
The people of the land have used oppression and extortion and have committed robbery; yes, they have wronged and vexed the poor and needy; yes, they have oppressed the stranger and temporary resident wrongfully. And I sought a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none. Therefore have I poured out My indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; their own way have I repaid [by bringing it] upon their own heads, says the Lord God. Ezekiel 22:29-31

Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.
"So how do we work with the Lord in the plowing stage of the harvest? Prayer is an important aspect of the plowing process. We plow the harvest field with our prayers and our lives, and God plows it by bringing problems and difficulties that, like a plowshare, turn the soil of people's hearts over. As a worker in God's harvest field, you need to be sensitive to the need for plowing." taken from Online Bible College lesson es106-11
"Prayer and seeking the Lord is not the same thing.
When you mouth is moving but your heart is not connected you are not praying you
