"A Virtual Reality (VR) prayer is a virtual prayer trip where a primary prayer recipient can connect with God and others in prayer (Virtual Reality for Prayers, Page 16)."
From Virtual Reality for Prayers Introduction:
A Beacon Is Being Lit
I would have never believed a year ago that governments could have closed churches throughout the world. It is hard to imagine that churches have become “nonessential.” In this lockdown, we have all come to appreciate how important it is to feel connected to God, each other, and our communities.
God Is In Control
How did this lockdown make you feel? In writing this book, I spoke with hundreds of Christians who have become isolated, frustrated, and depressed. I was pleasantly surprised with a constant theme of Christians saying, “God is in control. Our world is moving into something new.” I heard this from nearly everyone. If this sounds like you, you are not alone in this inner belief.
What Did We Learn
During this lockdown, all of us have felt the inner pain of being isolated and powerless. It has been emotionally painful to be unable to visit a church and pray for each other. How did this isolation affect your ability to connect? For a minute, imagine how this isolation affects a senior in senior living. How could this feeling affect a hospital patient, hospice patient, homeless person, or even a prison inmate? More than ever, we can appreciate this traumatic emotional feeling that many of us face every day.
God’s Perfect Timing
In God’s perfect timing, He brings us into a new reality that allows us to feel connected even when we are not physically in the same place. As the decades pass, we will look back at the horrible time this was. In the same breath, many will say that this is when God showed up and introduced how to embrace virtual reality to unleash our ability to feel connected in prayer.
