Google searches for the word prayer have increased dramatically in the past few weeks as we face this global Pandemic. hen I read this, I looked up the data at trends.google.com and this chart shows the increased growth of the use of the word Prayer in the past few months across the world and in the UK.
Google defines interest over time as ‘Numbers represent search interest relative to the highest point on the chart for the given region and time. A value of 100 is the peak popularity for the term. A value of 50 means that the term is half as popular. A score of 0 means there was not enough data for this term.’
This increase in the search for prayer was highlighted by Jeanet Sinding Bentzen’s research land you might be interested to look at this.
If people are searching about prayer, how can we engage and share what prayer is and what it means to us?
For me, prayer is really simple, it is a conversation with God where we can tell him how we feel and talk with him. As we pause, I believe that we can be guided and receive from God and for me this is invaluable in life.
