Prayer 217: The irritation of Acts

Dear God

Oh dear, I’ve just started reading Acts in my daily Bible reading schedule, and I have to admit I find the whole thing rather irritating. I don’t see any of the depth and mystery of the Gospels in it, and it just seems to be a lot of men making long and not very interesting speeches and indulging in a bit of posturing and derring-do.

I really wish the women had written it, and at least then we would have had a lot more practical wisdom concerning how to live as a Christian in the world. An opportunity lost there, I fear. Still, help me to be open-minded to Your still small voice as I trudge through it once more. Thank You.
