we all pray . . . some.
We pray to remain sober, based, or solvent. When the lump is deemed malignant. When the money runs out ahead of the month does. When the marriage is falling apart. We pray.
however wouldn’t we like to pray extra? better? better? With more hearth, faith, and fervency?
yet we now have kids to feed, bills to pay, closing dates to fulfill. The calendar pounces on our just right intentions like a tiger on a rabbit. And what about our checkered historical past with prayer? uncertain words. Unmet expectations. Unanswered requests.
We aren’t the first to struggle with prayer. the primary followers of Jesus needed prayer steerage too. actually, prayer is the one tutorial they ever requested.
And Jesus gave them a prayer. now not a lecture on prayer. not the doctrine of prayer. He gave them a quotable, repeatable, moveable prayer. Couldn’t we use the identical?
In earlier than Amen highest-promoting author Max Lucado joins readers on a experience to the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope for doubts and self belief even for prayer wimps. Distilling prayers within the Bible down to at least one pocket-sized prayer, Max reminds readers that prayer will not be a privilege for the pious nor the artwork of a chosen few. Prayer is simply a heartfelt dialog between God and his kid. Let the conversation start.
