The Crisis of our Prayer Life!
... when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth? (Luke 18:8)
The crisis of our prayer life is that our minds may be filled with ideas of God while our hearts remain far from Him. ~ Henri Nouwen
Is our consciousness of eternity as bankrupt as our diaries are replete with competitors to our prayer?
The simple fact of prayer is that it seeks the unseen God. Consequently, the carnal doubts and disbelief strive to rob our trust. Hope and confidence in both prayer and His presence lie fallen in silence.
The believer should know that prayer is the first shot fired as he wrestles any weak or strong man.
This is the war of those who would pray, indeed pray diligently. These hearts are attuned to the only God, while dwelling on earth.
The Last Word:
Prayer is about trusting and not doing. It is achieving the most by apparently doing the least.
