Have you ever prayed for God to “be with” someone? Sounds holy…but it’s not quite biblical. In fact, it shows the low expectation and little thought we put into what we are actually hoping God will do. When the disciples asked Jesus how to pray, he gave them the Lord’s Prayer, where every line contains an active verb for God and “be with” is nowhere to be found. It’s time for us to put some thought–and Scripture–into what we are seeking for God to do in our lives.
