Lord, I believe, but How Much Faith Does it Take?
I'm convinced that a profound problem which exists in the evangelical church today relates to understanding what prayer is. Most people that I talk to think that prayer is a way to have God give you what you want. A way to have God give you what we want. I become convinced in reading the scripture that it works differently. That prayer is a means, not the only one, but a means which God uses to give us what He wants.
