When I was in Lebanon training Egyptians, I asked several of them about their experience sharing their Christian faith with Muslims. We heard from George last time. Here is Sarah’s answer.

Go for it.
See you back here with Brett on Thursday!
Stay thirsty…er, um…stay righteous my friends…
Here’s my response to this week’s challenge:
My challenge video response will be posted in a few hours but in the meantime, here are some further reflections on the issue of prayer: A Little Lesson on Prayer.
Here’s the final clip of our conversation with atheist Marvin Strauss:
God tells us to pray to Him by making requests. We can pray for things. We’re also to pray that His will be done. At the garden, Jesus made a request that God would let this cup pass over Him, but He ultimately prayed that the Father’s will be done. However, since God has already planned history from beginning to end, how does it make sense to pray for things, as if our prayers make a difference? If God already planned everything and His plans can’t be thwarted, then when it comes to request-type prayer, doesn’t it make more sense to simply pray “Thy will be done” and leave it at that?
What do you think? How do you resolve this question for yourself? Give us your ideas, and we’ll hear from Brett on Thursday.
