7 Studies on the subject of Prayer, prepared by Dr Andrew Corbett, the pastor of Legana Christian Church, in Tasmania, Australia.

The goal of this set of Bible Studies is to provide a Biblical grounding for prayer that will provide a sound theological basis for praying appropriately which will also inspire the believer to more apt to pray. At the conclusion of each Bible Study lesson there is a series of challenges that are designed to help you to put into practice what we have just studied.

    Dear Brother in Christ –
    I have been using your Bible Studies’ for over a year now. My small group, is REALLY SMALL (4 – 6 regulars), and my CMA (Christian Motorcyclist’s Association) chapter, weekly Bible Study, varies between 10 to 20. Tonight there were 20. One thing that came up on our Study #4 of “Prayer That Works” relates to this statement; “Most of the Psalms are prayers. Not all of them can be prayed by us though, because some of them are “imprecatory.” This big word means that the author of the Psalm is deeply upset and is venting his anger or frustration out in violent terms to God. This type of Psalm is not (endorsed) by God.”
    I was unable to explain to them what you meant by that. Is it possible that you could shed some light on that statement for us?

    I appreciate all that you are doing, and I am looking forward to reading your E-book on “The Most Embarrassing Book in the Bible”
    May the Lord continue to use you in a mighty way, and bless your family – In the name of Jesus, AMEN.

      Hi Jim. Thanks for making contact. Yes, ‘imprecatory’ Psalms can be very confusing. In them, the psalmist is letting out his anger to God about those who have aggrieved him. This tells us two things. Firstly, many of the prayers recorded in the Psalms are extremely transparent and raw. That is, God is big enough for people to express their anger and frustration TO Him (not AT Him) about what has upset them. Secondly, the anger and hurt that many of these imprecatory psalms record expresses a longing for violent vengeance against their enemies. Since we are now in the New Covenant, we are not agents of violent vengeance upon our enemies, therefore we should not be praying for God to any smiting of our enemies since this would be contrary to Christ’s teaching.
      -Andrew C.
