I was reading 1 Samuel. I just made this note in Youversion. I thought of posting this here also. This may not be well typed since it was meant for a quick note The passage of text would be 1 Samuel 28:6-7. What do you think about this? When reading this passage, it sounds like Saul approached the medium only because Lord did not answer Saul. But we read in 1 Chronicles 10:13, 14 - "He failed to obey the lord’s command, and he even consulted a medium instead of asking the lord for guidance" What was wrong with Saul's prayer? - No intent to obey Lord's command - No dependency on Lord. He already made up mind that he would go to mediums if Lord did not answer - Never bothered to think why Lord did not answer - Never bothered to think about the previous cases of disobediences Are our prayers like this? Are we praying with intend to obey Lord's command or just going through motions? Are we ready to get an answer of "No" from Lord or making up our mind on how we would tackle the situation is Lord answers No?
