Does your prayer always seem to start with or major on “What should I do, Lord?”
We’ve all been there, caught in the midst of a “situation,” having to make a decision in a moment of crisis or tension, and we “throw up a prayer.” And most times that prayer in that moment is something akin to, “What do I dooooooooo?” Is there a better way to approach God and prayer that would yield better answers in a better time frame? Yes, my friend! A million times, YES.
Over the past few years I’ve spent time with folks who are making many different types of decisions in various situations and, time and time again, it became apparent that there are four very specific questions that can lead us seamlessly through a direct discussion with God to help us arrive at the issue of what to do next with a lot less stress and a whole lot more peace and confidence.
Are you ready to learn what the four questions every single Christian should really be asking God pretty much all the time so you can see that peace and confidence, too? If so, I want you to grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and Let’s Go!

Scripture References Mentioned in This Episode:
So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise.”
For I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment—what to say and what to speak.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-19
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good.
