So I flail away. I know that I am supposed to pray for His glory, His will, in His name which is somewhat synonymous with His way, His nature and character, but I struggle with knowing how.
Then I get help from the Scripture – now I am not claiming that I have this figured out, I just have help and in that help, hope. Look at Exodus 33:12 – 15. Note that here Moses is asking God for help to know His ways, His character and nature. Moses commits not to move until God shows up. In Mark 9:24 I got some more help. There the father asks Christ to help him in his unbelief. I can do all three of those.
Lastly this morning in Proverbs 15:8 – 9, I read that He loves those who pursue righteousness and delights in their prayer. That encouraged me no end.
So I am learning:
- To ask God to teach me who He is
- To help my unbelief, help me to worship Him correctly
- Wait for that help
- And that He loves and delights for me to approach Him in that way
