From The 21Most Effective Prayers of the Bible by Dr. Dave Earley


“Although some Bible teachers and pastors frown upon asking God for a sign, I think that there are those rare occasions in everyone’s life when it is perfectly appropriate. Like Gideon, you sense God is calling you to something far greater, vastly higher, and much more difficult than you can imagine. You are making the biggest decision of your life. You are mostly convinced that you have heard His voice. But you have to be certain. The stakes are unbelievably high. You need confirmation.”
