prayer as gossip

Sometimes praying is more like prying. Be careful what you share at prayer meetings. The offer of intimate fellowship is intoxicating and can make you confess things you may regret later. If you confess anything about your lack of faith, finances, sexuality, questions chances are that others will miraculously find out about it. Or, if the confessions are serious enough it may cost you the level of privilege that you now enjoy. Some people will not be able to help holding it against you. I compare prayer meetings to the internet... once it's out there it's out there and there's no getting it back. The information you publish may be used against you. So I just want to issue a warning. Take care with what you share. Sometimes... not all the time but sometimes... prayer is more like prying.
