Podcast Episode 50: Pray Anyway

    Feb 15, 2021

    Do you pray?

    And if you do, and even if you’ve been at it for a long time, do you ever have questions about the whys and the whens and the hows and the what fors?

    I’ll be honest, this can be some tricky territory for me–and even though I pray a lot, I have a rather complicated relationship with prayer. Maybe you do too.

    And whatever funky thing is going on in your world, please know that, even with a headful of unanswered questions and a pounding heart, you can pray anyway.

    Oh, God might grant your wishes, and He might not.

    And as a result, you may not feel like talking with Him because you are so sad or so angry or so worried. If that’s the case, I think it’s perfectly all right with Him if you just sit there.

    Because just sitting there, even if your arms are crossed in defiance and your jaw is set and your teeth are clenched and you might be giving Him the spiritual side-eye…well, that, too is a form of prayer. 

    And even if He doesn’t answer the way you hoped, this episode will encourage you to pray anyway…for at least one very good reason.
