I just finished reading the Genesis on my Kindle. People- even in the Abrahamic family prayed for things like love. They prayed to have babies.
Jacob prayed for like either Rachel (was it Rachel or was it someone else) or, was it Ladan, to have babies. Abraham wanted to pray to Sarah to have
babies, but, she didn't have any, so he had to have sex with Bilhal. I mean... now people just say that people shouldn't use prayer for their own
personal needs, but, just taking a theistic standpoint from it... like you could pretty much pray for anything! Why is it considered such a taboo
Oh yeah, there was also the time when Jacob asked his servant to look in the town of his father, was it, to look for a wife for Isaac. They did it
there too. It's not like this is something that's not done in the bible.
P.S- I'm not a believer, but, I would like a justification as to why Christians think in this way.
