Andy talks about prayer in this broadcast and talks about the differences in prayers. Isn’t prayer just talking to God? So what is important when we pray? Is it the words we use? What about the place or the time? As we examine the words of Jesus in Matthew 6, we are often surprised at the answers. God wants us to connect to him in a growing, living relationship, and this requires us to take actions we may not have considered before.Jesus launches into a discussion on prayer.
Could it be that there is more to prayer than we thought? Two thousand years ago, Jesus pulled his disciples aside and taught them to pray. In examining his instructions, we find a disconnect between his teaching and the way we typically approach prayer. We discover that there are some things about prayer we think are important but aren't; and there are some things we don't think are important that are.
Perhaps prayer is not about getting what you want for your life.

Andy Stanley has a way of sharing insights on so many subjects. This talk on marriage is no different. In this talk he shares:
New husbands and wives and dreams and goals for their marriage, what roles they will fill, they desire a great marriage even what the wife wears to bed.
There are financial goals...all these desires have "I" in common. Every bride and groom walk down the aisle with a box of desires.
Once the marriage happens, and without really knowing what's happening, married people take all their history and expectations on their new spouse. Good desires become expectations. That kind of pressure can be dangerous to a marriage. They dynamic, instantly, changes because there are two big "I's" in the marriage.
Selfishness, in a marriage, can destory expectations and can erode trust.
In some marriage the "dominant" spouse thinks they're in control.
It's very easy, for me, to be me. It is very easy for you to be you.
Conforming to someone else's expectations is very stressful. We are individuals.
Some marriages are based on compromise. It goes good for a while then it starts to implode.
Your focus of your attention has to be about each other.
When you settle in to compromise the marriage is an "I" marriage.
Discontent can destroy what brought you and your spouse together.
A desire migrated into an expectation where you say "You owe me" then romance suffers greatly.

It's something Danimator has fantisized about for a few years now ...
But ... where to begin?! How can you maintain that kind of devotion? Do you start with a story plot and add characters? Or do you start with characters and add a story? So many questions! So much inspiration!

You probably don’t remember the first prayer you prayed in your life.
Most prayers are about asking for stuff. Is there more to it than focusing on me?
All people, who pray, run against God NOT doing what God should do.
We don’t know why things don’t work out. If we are honest, sometimes, prayer is like a “good luck charm” for some people.
God seems to answer the weirdest prayers and ignores many of the serious ones. God doesn’t seem to make sense.
It would be nice if we can figure out the “code” to get our prayers answered.
What if the point of prayer is NOT about getting stuff?
Jesus actually taught people how to pray. Just because you’ve been praying all your life doesn’t mean you understand it.
Jesus said, “Don’t pray like the hypocrites do.”
It seems location was important to Jesus when people prayed. Jesus didn’t have respect for people who prayed, in public, to be seen.
Jesus said don’t pray to be seen. He says to pray in private. The connection comes when you pray at one place…alone with you and God.
Jesus says that God sees what we do in secret (pray) and it will be rewarded. This is a foundational principle that Jesus taught about prayer.
The God who sees you in secret will reward you!!
God doesn’t get impressed by the quality or quantity of your words. God is NOT moved by such things.
Prayer can be so simple and so heartfelt. It’s not about how long you pray or the “floweree” words. The pressure is off.
