Recently a situation was brought to my attention, a situation about which the person involved asked for prayer. I confess my skepticism. There is a long history of exaggeration and occasional outright-lying. I wondered why I should or how I could possibly pray when the facts presented may not be the facts at all.
I thought that I wouldn’t pray. The motives of the person may not have been right.
And then the Spirit was all, “Pray anyway.”
I’ve never seen a burning bush and God certainly doesn’t speak to me in a audible voice. Being the timid type of person I am, I’m sure that He doesn’t reveal Himself in this way because I would absolutely freak out. He does, however, very clearly speak to my soul – especially when I have a bad attitude.
The person might be exaggerating or lying. I don’t know. If so, then prayer is needed. If not, then prayer is needed. Only God knows the full truth. All I can do is obey.
