spout advice or pray


One of my most tragic observations has been the reluctance of therapists, even Christian therapists, to pray with the people they are counseling. It reflects the reluctance of so many Christians to pray with one another. We’re too busy spouting advice. What if we talked less to them and talked more to God with them? Why this reluctance?
