An excerpt from John Goldingay’s book ‘To the Usual Suspects’ based on Moses prayer to God

…five amazing things you can tell God not to do:

  • Don’t lose your temper
  • Don’t give up with the job half done
  • Don’t give people the excuse to misjudge you
  • Don’t be inflexible
  • Don’t forget your promises

Strange isn’t it?


One thought on “Prayer”

  1. Is that before or after you say that these things are quite clearly anthropomorphisms and that you can't really say these things to God, because there's no way he'd forget his promises, etc.?
