Recently I read the book A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Praying with Paul by D.A. Carson. The book has many highlights, but none more personally eye-opening and convicting than this:
In the Western world, many of us in our praying are like nasty little boys who ring front doorbells and run away before anyone answers.
I cannot help but pray and ask God straight from Psalm 85:6 "Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in You?"
Will you join me?
