Have You Argued with God Lately?

Mere prayer sayers, who don’t pray at all, forget to argue with God; but those who prevail bring forth their reasons and strong arguments.

Charles Spurgeon (1834 – 1892)

  1. As I understand prayer, I think Spurgeon means arguing our case, not the kind of arguments we have with people when we’re at odds with them. That’s what Christ does for us. He lives eternally to intercede — to argue our case before the Father as our Advocate or, in modern vocabulary, defense attorney (1 John 2.1). Nor are we trying to convince an unwilling God to answer prayer, a God who doles out His blessings with an eye dropper as if He can’t spare it. Sometimes God waits to answer our prayer to see how badly we want His will in our lives.
