Prayer Watch - The Family Business

puzzle

I believe that all Christians are called to intecessory prayer and its something I've been involved with for much of my Christian life. However, I've been struggling a bit with what is for me, a new understanding of intercessory prayer using the House of Prayer model and decided it was time to get serious with God over the issue.

During the Friday night prayer watch, I felt disorientated and at a loss as the prayers seemed to sway this way and that, and I could never seem to catch up, let alone have the scriptures to hand from which I wanted to pray. All in all quite stressful.

As soon as I was in my car I cried out to the Lord in frustration, as I seemed perfectly eloquent and comfortable praying to Him on my own. "Lord, why can't I pray comfortably like this in the prayer watch?"

He answered me very simply, "Sarah, you were not prepared".

I spent some time with Him and asked Him to guide me and explain why I was having trouble preparing. Below is a summary of our conversation.
