from Tony Stoltzfus
A few years back I made one simple change in the way I pray—and my percentage of answered prayer went up about 1000%. After 35 years as a Christian, 25 as a ministry leader and 15 of coaching pastors about how to meet God in difficult circumstances (irony alert!), I was still asking Him all the wrong questions. When I finally figured out how to change the subject to what He wanted to talk about, it was like our communication went from snail mail to instant messaging—and got way more intimate and revelatory in the process.
The Questions for Jesus approach is about making that change of subject. It moves us from praying about the business of the Christian life (what I am supposed to do for Jesus) to talking with Jesus about Us—about our relationship. Questions for Jesus are intimate prayers that touch on our deepest desires--like this:
- “Jesus, what do you like best about me today?”
- “Jesus, why’d you make leaves green? I mean, you could have made everything gray, or the color of mud, or no color at all. Why green?”
- “When you called James and John, and they left their business and their dad behind to run down the beach after you—what was going on in your heart in that moment?”
- “Jesus, what did I do today that made you laugh?”
If you'd like to learn to pray like that--and hear Jesus reply profoundly in 30-60 seconds--this interactive course is for you!
