Training Required

Whenever people handle powerful (and therefore dangerous) things we usually require a certain level of maturity and often require special training. In many circumstances we even require a license, to verify that a person is qualified to use the dangerous object or substance.

You can think of many different examples. We don’t let children drink alcohol. We require drivers to be 16 and pass a competency test before they can legally operate an automobile. Doctors must take years of schooling and receive other professional certification before they can prescribe powerful medicines.

What would happen if God let everyone exercise the full power of prayer without spiritual maturity and without training in how to use it?

This seems to hint at an answer to why our prayers tend to lack power. Does this make sense? What do you think?
