Why do people think prayer is a means of getting what they want?
Prayer is actually the means of getting what we need to live the life God wants.
This understanding means we use prayer not to seek physical stuff, but rather to seek spiritual qualities like patience, gentleness, kindness, and things like these…without which we can’t live the way God wants us to live.
But don’t we need a certain amount of physical stuff to live life, too? Yes, but not as much as most of us think. And even that, God has promised to throw in without our asking – if we faithfully ask Him for the spiritual stuff.

The purpose of this blog is to proclaim Jesus Christ to those who want to hear about Him without having to join a church – or anything else – but Him.
