    SILAS BAPTIST

  • Want a surefire prayer that God will absolutely answer?

    Ask him to show you your sin “so I might hate it as much as you do.”

    Be forewarned: The answer probably won’t come as a lovely handwritten note on lavender-scented stationery or even as a text message with clever emojis.

    It might come as a gentle whisper in your ear, but probably not. Probably it will come when you’re right in the middle of doing something you always do and maybe have occasionally thought you shouldn’t.
