The above Scriptures show us the importance of decisiveness. James said if a man wavers — if he cannot make up his mind — he is “unstable in all his ways” and he cannot expect to receive anything from the Lord. Often we are indefinite in our prayng. When I ask people what they are praying about, they sometimes answer they don’t know. One person said he was praying just to be praying. Of course, there is one kind of prayer we pray to worship and have fellowship with God, but in this lesson we are dealing primarily with praying to get an answer to our prayers. If we are not careful, this general type of praying will carry over when we need to be specific about a certain need.
