Recently, I was driving along in my pick-up listening to the radio, and before I knew it, I was talking out loud to God. I mean, full-voice talking to him. Thankfully, nobody was around watching me or they would have thought I was crazy talking to myself.
Here is what I was talking to God about: I was asking him to help me pray a big audacious prayer. I mean, asking him to help me pray over something that might be way out of my comfort zone. Here is the thing, I pray for my friends; I pray for my family, sons, wife. I pray for the needs of others in my life but I have found lately that I have not asked God for something big and crazy.
I have read the Bible a few times, and from what I see, the early church prayed some big stuff. We see in the Old Testament that people prayed for walls to fall down, or that the sun would stop in the sky, and God answered.
I am not sure about you, but I want to see a movement of God like that in my generation. I want to be part of a group of people who really believe that with God, all things are possible.
So, next time you are alone and you are talking with God, ask him to give you that outrageous thing to pray about. Ask God to do what seems to be the impossible and see how He answers.
The way I see it, there is no better way to live.
