STOP PRAYING!

“There comes a moment when praying becomes a form of spiritual procrastination. It’s time to stop praying and start acting” (Mark Batterson). Prayer can become a refuge for cowardly fear, an occasion for inaction, and even outright disobedience! It’s why God ordered Moses at the Red Sea to stop praying and "go forward" (Exodus 14:15). Daunting waters won't part till we put shoes on our faith. If God's Word is clear on an issue—e.g., forgiving our foes, giving selflessly, or lovingly keeping His Commandments—simply “go forward.” Is there something you know you should do? Stop praying and just do it! Without necessary action, prayers are meaningless gibberish, Pharisaical showmanship, and hypocritical laziness.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
