I Am Too BusyI Feel Too Dry Spiritually To Pray
I Feel No Need To Pray
I Am Too Bitter To Pray
I Am Too Ashamed To Pray
I Am Content With Mediocrity
Excerpt from A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and His Prayers by D.A. Carson
God doesn't demand hectic church programs and frenetic schedules; he only wants his people to know him more intimately, says D. A. Carson. The apostle Paul found that spiritual closeness in his own fellowship with the Father. A Call to Spiritual Reformation investigates the Epistles to see what lessons Paul taught in his "school of prayer." Christians today can still achieve the confidence Paul enjoyed by following his life-shaping principles and searching for a deeper devotional experience.
