In my previous post I talked about how I struggle with prayer itself. I also struggle with what to pray about.
I find it difficult to determine where to draw the line. What I mean is what should I pray about and what should be left to my own choices.
For example: praying over which can of beans to buy – seems stupid to me. Praying whether I should marry the girl I’m dating (I did that and it’s working out ok!) What I’m saying is how important does something have to be before we should include it in our prayers?
God gave me a brain and my agency. If I am ever going to be like Him don’t I have to learn how to make good descisions based on the consequences, logic etc.? If I rely on God for all my descisions then don’t I just become a puppet?
Where is the balance between turning my will over to God and growing through using my own agency? How involved should God be in the “little” descisions of my life…does He really care which brand of beans I buy?
