Hey guys, this is my first post on here! But maybe to introduce myself, you can check out my blog. I write on current events or just things I am learning and studying about God's Word and how it applies to the world today!

My latest post actually deals with Solo Scriptura!

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, let me know and I will be glad to talk with you 🙂

Can we rightly say “no” to prayer requests?

"Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison—that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak." – Apostle Paul to the church in Colossae (Colossians 4:2-4; focus on verse 2)

Should we decline a prayer request if the one requesting doesn't update us? That is my main question. With social media and technology supplying expedient means to spread prayer requests, should we start saying or implying that we won't be praying with and for others if they don't update those asked. What benefit do we have in praying if we don't know how God is answering our prayers in order to grow in gratitude?

Personally, I pray with and for those who update me, or I have an inclination to ask how our prayer is being answered.

What Biblical truth is hardest for you to accept and why?

For me it is the truth presented in Romans 9 (ironic isn't it). I am more than happy to accept the predestination of the saints before the foundation of the world to eternal life, but as soon as I examine the consequent of that in terms of the reprobate, I tend to get uncomfortable (didn't Calvin himself call it, "that horrible decree"?).

Anyway, I was just curious what others in the sub thought.
