Puritan Board Freshman
Hi, I have been wrestling with some aspects of prayer recently. I know that many voices, not necessarily reformed voices, emphasize the importance of listening to God in prayer. Then the step further is that many people say that it is Biblical to be silent before the Lord referencing verses such as Psalm 46:10. If God "has spoken" (Hebrew 1:1-2) and his word is truly totally sufficient, then wouldn't it be pointless to be "silent before the Lord?" I have very little education on this and would love some scriptural guidance. Thank you for your time and thought.
