Celebration of Discipline :: Prayer

The Discipline of Prayer

“…it is the Discipline of prayer that brings us into the deepest and highest work of the human spirit. Real prayer is life creating and life changing.”

“To pray is to change. Prayer is the central avenue God uses to transform us. If we are unwilling to change, we will abandon prayer as a noticeable characteristic of our lives. The closer we come to the heartbeat of God the more we see our need and the more we desire to be conformed to Christ.”

“In prayer, real prayer, we begin to think God’s thoughts after him: to desire the things he desires, to love the things he loves, to will the things he wills. Progressively, we are taught to see things from his point of view.”

“God always meets us where we are and slowly moves us along into deeper things.”

“Success in the small corners of life gives us authority in the larger matters. If we are still, we will learn not only who God is, but how his power operates.”
