I’m scheduled to preach in a few weeks and as I’ve been wrestling as late with prayer (and in prayer) I’ve decided to make it my subject of choice. In my study I’ve come across a passage in Zephaniah which is kinda like one of this indicator thingy ma-gingies (i.e. pressure velves) which tells you when things are not good. The Lord has given us a “Spiritual Decay” pressure velve (an indicator thingy):
Those who have turned back from following the LORD, who do not seek the LORD or inquire of him. – Zephaniah 1:6, ESV
When someone stops seeking the Lord or inquiring of him in pray, that is a bad sign.
