You get excited about weird things, you behave in unexplainable ways, and you react in surprising ways to things that other people do not even notice.
And you say cryptic things, like:
...we don't know God's plan.
...he's just having a "wilderness" experience.
...I have a heart for worship.
...you need to spend some time sitting at the feet of Jesus
I need to pray about it.
Makes sense right?
...we're thinking about having a baby, but we need to pray about it...
...I'm thinking about going back to school, but I need to pray about it...
...we're thinking about sponsoring a child from Kenya, but I need to pray about it...
...the meals/hospitality ministry is really short on volunteers? Cool, I'll pray about it...
Pragmatism is a philosophy which basically states that the only solution to a problem is the one that actually works. When it comes to "praying about something," I admit, I get a little pragmatic: if it doesn't work, it's not a real answer.
What do you think? Are there times when we don't need to pray, we just need to do what we know is right?
