On Monday, I posted about the need to pray and gave a tasty tip about how to do it. But is there ever a time to act as opposed to a time to simply pray? How can a kick butt girl kick up their prayers a notch?
Situation: The super gross couple making out in the hallway
- A Praying Person would stand on the opposite side of the hallway and pray for the couple – that they would stop being so physical and realize how totally inappropriate they’re are.
- A Ninja Prayer Warrior would do the same thing, but also carry a spray bottle. When they’re done praying, they would walk to the couple and pretend to sneeze while squirting them at the same time. That will make them stop.
Situation: The guy or girl in class who is a disrespectful jerk
- A Praying Person would lift them up to God, praying that He would convict them of their attitude. They would also pray for an opportunity to talk to the person about their behavior.
- A Ninja Prayer Warrior would pray, then hide notes everywhere for the jerk to find that simply say I’m watching you. Then they would get a group of people who, throughout the day, would just stare at the person. The paranoia alone will cause them to be silent with fear.
Situation: The gabby girl who can’t seem to say anything that isn’t gossipy or hurtful
- A Praying Person would not only pray that they would stop, but pray for the people that are being hurt by all the talk. They also wouldn’t hesitate to call the person out on their gossip and do whatever they can to avoid those conversations.
- A Ninja Prayer Warrior would do all of the above, but also start packing pepper spray. Ever time the gossip girl started in on one of her rants, the ninja would stealthy squirt a bit of the spray, causing gossip girl to start coughing and gagging. Sure, it will probably clear out the room and cause some slight respiratory problems for everyone around, but at least she won’t be talking for a while.
Situation: The girl from middle school that you can’t stand because of some horrible thing she did to you that she probably doesn’t even remember
- A Praying Person would confess to God their bitterness and resentment. Then, they would pray that God would help them to forgive the girl and move on. Finally, they would pray that God would bless that girl – and keep praying until they actually mean it.
- A Ninja Prayer Warrior would pray all that stuff, then devote themselves to the girl as an indentured servant and smother her with kindness. Carry her backpack. Get her lunch. Wash their car. Carry her up stairs. They would do so many nice things for her, she might change schools just to get away from it all.
Are you up for the ninja prayer warrior challenge?
