For the longest time I thought God was a vending machine God. Step one: Insert prayers and sufficient amount of faith. Step two: press said request. Step three: reach in to receive delivered answer.
That’s not of course how it works. If it were, where would be the mystery and complexity of a God we’d actually want to serve rather than One who jumped at our command.
That’s just one of the myths about prayer. Here’s a clever way of “bursting” (pun intended) some other prayer myths.
SUPER SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS
What you’ll need:
