Over the years, I have collected a number of cartoons about prayer. Besides making us laugh, they provide insight into the opinions and thoughts of people. Several give a glimpse of what the average person thinks about prayer.
Rather than seek forgiveness, we try to plea bargain with God.

When our prayers are not answered, we try to figure out why. Often, our reasoning is completely off base.
We only pray when we are in trouble.
Rather than rely on current opinions and human reasoning, we need to discover what Scripture really teaches about prayer.
