    Thanks for the post. Certainly food for thought. I struggle with #1, giving God time to speak.

  3. Nice article! Prayer is a very interesting topic for me. After losing our son, I kept asking God what kind of a Father he was – how could I ask for bread & get a stone instead? (Matt 7:9) But this is what I got when I became still enough to listen. What if what I was calling bread was actually the stone and vice versa? After all, He is able to see the end from the beginning while my view is super limited. I’m learning to surrender those prayer’s whose answer I don’t understand; I file them under the ‘Now I know in part’ cabinet (1 Cor 13:12).

    thank you for this post. my question however is a bit unrelated. i would like to know, as a christian, is it wrong to partake in wine ?

      Rather than say whether it is right or wrong, I would say that one should weigh such questions in this way – does it please God, and is your action beneficial to other believers? lastly, how does such an action reflect your faith to the world out there. Different people will have different answers to the above, depending on their relationship with and commitment to God.
