I’m a firm believer in the power of riddles. I love riddles and enjoy the challenge of solving them. They force me to think in unconventional, abnormal ways – to approach the entire space differently. I enjoy finding and seeing the patterns that emerge in the datasets, and working the various iterations through my imagination. I love my job. But to the point of this post, I propose that riddles provide excellent critical thinking exercises, and that anyone who proposes to study anything, should desire to hone their critical thinking skills.

Why and How Do I Pray?

What is Prayer? Wayne Grudem says that “Prayer may be defined as follows: Prayer is personal communication with God”. Now that is a mighty wide definition.
