The Oreo model of prayer

October 16, 2005

OreoIn the second session, Kay taught the Vineyard 5-step prayer model. But she cheated, and reduced it to 3 steps (isn’t that a Vineyard heresy?), which she called interview – pray – interview. Nobody remembers the five steps anyway, it’s something you internalize over time.

She actually went over all 5 steps without identifying them. This session took a lot more explanation of nuts & bolts so it took time to get to the exercise, but it is still so cool to see a roomful of people praying for each other in small clusters, learning how to be supernatural without being freaky. It’s a beautiful thing.

When Kay said, “There are 3 steps: Interview, pray, interview,” somebody (was it Thomas?) said, “Like an Oreo.”

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. Mmm, oreos. Need dessert now.

  2. Oh, wow and double wow! Another great Christian blog with another great writer and brain behind it. Like I NEED another blog to read (SIGH!) Well, it’s too great to pass, so I’ll be hanging around.

  3. Chris, over at Paradoxology, is asking a related question: Are We Too Sphisticated for Healing?. This post on the Vineyard model is relevent, so I threw up a link.
