resources for prayer online

I found this site today Matthew Henry’s Method for Prayer.  You can actually read the whole book http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=anyway07-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1926777085&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifronline or just browse the short forms of prayer.  Sometimes when we pray extemporaneously (making it up as we go), our prayers become mostly about us and we forget to whom our prayers are addressed.  Consulting a book like A Method for Prayer or another favorite http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=anyway07-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0851512283&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThe Valley of Vision: a collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions can be really helpful in lifting our eyes up to our Maker, instead of focusing solely on ourselves. 

Another online help for prayer is Scotty Smith’s blog Heavenward, simply his prayers for each day.  I like how he turns Scripture into personal prayer, something I try to incorporate into my own prayer life.

Here’s a great post about why calling prayer time a quiet time should be a misnomer.  Even our physical stance can affect our prayers.  We often sit as we pray, but what about kneeling?  Or lifting up hands (I Timothy 2:8)?  A bodily expression of humility and praise can often bring about the spiritual attitude we need in prayer.

Just some ideas.  Happy praying!
