In Exodus 32, we see that by praying to God, Moses is able to change the way God does things. I’m not trying to say anything contradictory to the sovereignty of God, understand what I am saying though. What I’m saying is that sometimes prayer can help affect the way God does things, because he listens to us. In Matthew, Jesus says “ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened.” And that’s just what Moses does in Exodus. Prayer is a powerful weapon, and yet despite all the planning, all the strategizing, all the blogging, all the planting we have done, we have forgotten about prayer. Prayer matters.
Thomas Brunt is prayerfully discerning the pastoral ministry and loves to teach and preach God’s word, and live it out to be a faithful Shepherd to the one true good shepherd, Jesus. Oh, and he likes to blog about God’s word a lot, and sometimes sports.
