I Will Pray About It...

When someone drops the "I'll pray about it" line, they might be sincerely hitting the pause button to chat with God about the next steps. But let's be real: sometimes folks use this as a fancy way of dragging their feet or flat-out saying no without having to say it. It's like putting on a spiritual show but not really planning to buy a ticket to the action. We're all about being honest and direct in our walk with faith, so if it's a no, let's just say it's a no, right?


James wasn't messing around when he said, "Faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead" (James 2:17). That's as clear as day. It's like saying, "Talk is cheap." If we're spending all our time saying we'll pray about this or that but never actually get around to doing something, then what's the point? Faith isn't just something we talk about — it's something we live out. Prayer is powerful, sure, but it's not a cop-out. It's supposed to fuel us into action, not give us an excuse to sit back.


So, here's the deal: praying about it should be the start, not the end. Let's make sure when we say we'll pray about something, we're not just using it as a polite brush-off. Faith and action go hand-in-hand. It's like being in a car with the engine running but never putting it into gear. We need to drive forward, powered by our prayers and our actions. That's living out our faith — it's active, it's real, and it makes a difference. Let's not just say it: let's do it.
