We Like Control, Or At Least Predictability

October 30, 2013

“We want to know who it is we’re talking to when we pray. We hate mystery. And we want to be able to count on Him to do what we expect. We like control, or at least predictability. So we come up with images of God that emerge from our early experiences with church and fathers, and that serve our purposes.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, The PAPA Prayer, Page 105

Questions for Reflection:
How do you picture God when you pray?
How do you think this might need to change in order to have a more authentic relationship with Him?
