photoI’ve prayed dangerous things. And not to challenge or test God! I think I have because I perpetually hear this one verse spinning on the rotisserie of my gut: “You do not have, because you do not ask.” When I prayed in the psych ward, I prayed dangerously, “God if you can get me out of here, I’ll spend the rest of my life helping people not end up here.” After dealing with my younger brother, battling addiction and homelessness, I prayed, “God, give me eyes to see people the way you do.” That’s dangerous. Because if God answers it, you’ll find yourself in tears for others, quite often. At times, I’ve woken up in the middle of the night, sweating and heart racing with a huge need on my mind for someone else. Sometimes as crazy as praying for the girls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram in Africa. That’s dangerous because the enemy whispers, “Who are you to pray for something so big?” Maybe I sound like a fool, but I guess I pray dangerously because I know that in the end, He hears every one of them, but always answers in HIS best way. And I trust that implicitly. I’d rather pray dangerously and have him say “No” or “Not now” than stand before him one day and hear him say, “You didn’t have, because you didn’t ask.” I hope this encourages someone today. #prayingdangerously
