Too often in our prayers we ask God to ease our worries and satisfy our wants before adding “in Jesus’ name” as an obligatory spiritual seasoning.
It doesn’t take long before rote prayers fragment your attention span and freeze your heart.
The first step in becoming complete is to stop relying on our own resourcefulness and recognize our great need of a powerful God.
We must train ourselves to make prayer a default reaction in all situations.
When I couldn’t talk to my mother about God, I talked to God about my mother.
