More confused

THE more reports I read about Olive Jones and her prayer sessions, the more confused I become.

THE more reports I read about Olive Jones and her prayer sessions, the more confused I become.

As a Christian I am fully aware of the power of prayer but in the case of Olive prayer seems to have become a confrontational weapon and the whole thing has got completely out of control. Reading the comments from the family, it would appear that Olive continued her requests to pray even though time and again she had been asked not to.

The trouble with some of those who see the light is that they do not know how to use it. Rather than use a torch to guide those who need help they use their faith like a search light, blinding all around.

Olive could have just prayed in her own home or even gathered her church members to a prayer meeting, but no, she had to traumatise the very person she wanted to help.

I do so hope that in this season of goodwill and a year of new beginnings lessons can be learned, the main one being that we respect the views of all even if we do not agree with them.
