A dangerous prayer

I was reminded of something we used to pray that I want to pray again, but am a bit afraid to pray: God overwhelm us.

I think that the disciples in Acts were overwhelmed by what God was doing. That's why they were filled with awe. That's why many people were added to the faith. That's why they saw the supernatural working of God.

I want to see that too. I want to be a part of that. Would you join with me and praying God overwhelm us.

Yeah, I think comfort and intellectualism can be sorta like the evil anti-awe. We don't even give credit to God for some of the amazing things he does because we are afraid to be overwhelmed. We are scared at the prospect of God being bigger than we can handle or explain. But that's what "awe" is, isn't it?

I will definitely pray that with you!
