“Whereas the mindset of believers in other countries may be an overt ‘can-do’, in British evangelicalism it is often ‘pietism’.
‘Let’s just pray about it’ is the standard response to a difficulty. That is all that is required for a solution. It might not be put quite like that, but that is in effect the default mode.
Yet listen to God’s words to a praying leader:
“The LORD said to Joshua, “Stand up! What are you doing down on your face? Israel has sinned…” (Joshua 7:10-11).
Joshua is challenged to action.”
