After Manoah learns about his wife's encounter with the angel, he prays. And what he prays is revealing about his attitude (humble and yielded) and spiritual condition. Rather than questioning God about the encounter--its validity or its meaning--he prays for teaching, and God hears and responds.
"Then Manoah prayed to the LORD and said, 'O Lord, please let the man of God whom you sent come again to us and teach us what we are to do with the child who will be born.' And God listened to the voice of Manoah, and the angel of God came again to the woman as she sat in the field." (vs. 8-9)
Is asking God to teach you a regular part of your prayers? Why is this important? What's one example of how God responded when you asked for teaching and/or growth through a situation? Tami
