These kind of prayer requests drive me mad. I'd be a hypocrite if I said I've never done it. We justify our own actions by calling it a prayer request. But if our prayer request starts off with, "Have you heard," we've probably veered off the prayer road and pulled onto the gossip on ramp.
Prayer is not about revealing secrets. It's about lifting up those around us to God in order that their lives may be better. Be careful of being around someone who tells a lot of secrets. They're not telling yours only because you are in the room with them. Be careful that you are not telling secrets. "A gossip tells secrets, so don't hang around with someone who talks too much." (Proverbs 20:19)
Which side of the conversation have you been on in the video? I've been on both. I'm embarrassed by that. Who knew that a blond from SNL would help me with my need? How does this video strike you?
