I am relatively new to the site. So, thank you so much for this blessing! @Matthew_Mittelberg, I’ve been reading the book The Ministry Of Intercession by Andrew Murray and although I have not finish it, it has raised a few questions I hope you can help me with.
He talks about our lacking in prayer (the minute time we give it etc) and follows each chapter with references to the book of Acts. I’ve read about the power the Primitive Church had in prayer and fasting etc… and made me wonder:
- Is it the lack of discipline in prayer alone that is keeping us from evangelizing with the same miracles and power as the apostles? Or
- Have we become too engrossed in a sort of “median” skepticism that’s keeping us from actually witnessing God’s palpable power? Are we brushing off miracles too easily?
I apologize if the questions are not expressed correctly. I’m just trying to make sense and answer some of the questions that have come to me recently. Thank you for your time.
