Prayer is concrete.
August 28, 2022
Prayer must be experienced to be believed. Human beings tend to relate to what is concrete and to be distanced from what is theoretical. Prayer is very concrete. There is nothing theoretical about it. It is a very natural function. The benefits that flow from prayer are equally natural and in time, visible. You can experience the benefit of prayer. It isn't just a bottle with a message contained within set upon the sea to drift. It has direction, purpose, results, and those results are concrete. The difficulty which you have in dealing with those results is that you expect certain results, and when those expectations in specific terms are not met, you are often drawn to the conclusion that the prayers are not answered. Recognize that the prayers are indeed answered, and discover those answers by seeking elsewhere to find another means of God's response.
