When we read the Bible, we’re looking for God. When we pray, we’re listening to God.
Bible study isn’t about discovering a user’s manual for life but about finding and understanding God Himself. Similarly, prayer isn’t a vending machine or a consultation. When we engage with the Bible and prayer we bring our lives to God to receive Him.
When we read the Bible and pray, we’re also looking to see and understand God’s work, God’s life, and God’s action in this world. Therefore, we ask God in prayer, “What have You done and what are You doing?”
