The Answer to Prayer

I love the exchange in the gospel today (John 1:35-42) between Jesus and the two disciples of John the Baptist, one of whom is the future apostle Andrew. They ask, "Rabbi, where are you staying?"

Jesus responds, "Come, and you will see."

Isn't that the story of our prayer life? So many times we ask for information, but all we get is an invitation. We want to know the what of God's purposes for us and where our journey is meant to go, but all we get is the how of getting there.

And this is enough. It's an invitation to trust, to the next step, to go and see.
