a few different christian prayer groups have the understanding that – answered prayer – is personal revelation-- revealed–
1 cor 14-22-27
1… the Lord showed me this–
2… or the Lord said this
24 But if an unbeliever or someone who does not understand comes in while everybody is prophesying, he will be convinced by all that he is a sinner and will be judged by all, 25 and the secrets of his heart will be laid bare. So he will fall down and worship God, exclaiming, “God is really among you!”
but when i go to catholic prayer groups and ask them - how has God answered - their prayer-- i get confusing looks–
i have had family – tell me well i have been praying 4 you— and my reply iis
Well what did God tell you??
it seems to confuse my catholic family – that they can get an answer?
