Prayer and Offence

Praying to God and asking him to do something that he has already done, will lead to disappointment. This has happened to many Christians. They have prayed fervently and persistently for a sick friend, but nothing has happened. When the friend eventually dies of their sickness, the Christian is left feeling disappointed with God. If this disappointment is not dealt with properly, the Christian can take offence of God. This is dangerous, because offence destroys faith and grieves the Holy Spirit.

For more on this theme see Rock of Offence.
