God Answers Prayers

May 26, 2011

Last Sunday I gave a talk on the power of prayer, touching a bit on the issue of God not always giving us what we think we need or what we want.  He knows what’s best for us and always answers our prayers, but sometimes the answer is no or not yet.

A couple days later, our 8-year-old prayed for Jesus to drop a bomb on his brother while he was sleeping.  I’m 58% sure he was joking.  And now more than ever, I totally see the wisdom in God not giving us everything we ask for.

    Hilarious :)

    I was thinking about needs and wants the other day, and I thought that sometimes, getting what we want is actually a genuine need, even if what we want isn’t usually considered needful.

    Now see if you can make any sense of what I just said :)
