I Don't See the Point of Praying When God Knows Everything

/
Remember how, at the start of your Christian walk, you were diligent to pray whenever you could, because prayer seemed like the most instinctive and comforting thing to do? But maybe over the years, praying has become harder. You feel like you don't know what to say, and if you do think of something to pray for, you also don't know what to expect, what the outcome will be.

I sometimes wish I had a clear mandate from God, like how He had directed Abraham in no uncertain terms on where to go (Genesis 12:1–5).

How to Walk With A Friend Who's Doubting the Faith | YMI

/
It can be stressful when someone we love starts to doubt God. We worry that we won’t have the answers to convince them to stay in the faith, and fear what will happen if they were to leave God completely. But doubts are a perfectly normal part of a Christian’s journey. And God is more than capable of helping us figure out what faith means in the face of life’s difficult realities.

Is There Room for Doubt in Christianity?

/
Doubting is normal. Uncomfortable as it can be, wondering whether we really have “got it right” is as human as it is inevitable, especially when we’re swimming each day in a sea of different beliefs.
