WHEN YOU PRAY THE ANSWER YOU GET MIGHT VERY WELL BE YOUR OWN
The Civil Writer Magazine
When we pray the intention is to go to God for an answer. When we discover an answer it may very well be our own. As reasonable as it may sound God may give way to your own intellectual faculties. Your intellectual faculties are imagination, reason, intuition, perception, memory and will. With these intellectual faculties you can control what you think. If your mind is intelligent enough to propose a question to God why would it not be intelligent enough to receive an answer from your own intellectual faculties. We have a tendency to go to God as plan B., after we are exhausted from our own ability to reason and solve problems. Research says our brain is more active and creative than you think when it’s tired with wandering thoughts brought on by fatigue. This can lead to some insightful solutions partly because, in order to be creative, your mind needs to consider some (unorthodox) ideas that don’t necessarily feel like they’re on track with what you or God is trying to achieve. Let the truth be told there are many times your answer is correct after a prayer to God being you are really using yourself as plan A. You are an intelligent person therefore you can produce various solutions not knowing God was unintentionally plan B.
