Error in Prayer
In a previous post regarding prayer, I commented on the proper disposition to prayer.
However, what triggered that post was a woman’s concern over obtaining verification that her prayers were heard. So now I would like to address this proof we want that our prayers will be answered.
The woman had mentioned a book she read. She felt the book implied that if she was “praying right” she would receive proof her prayers had been heard. If in fact the book implied that, it is wrong.
If we think the success of our prayer is dependent upon our efforts, that is not faith.
At its root, prayer is surrender to God’s supreme dominion.
