Three Touchstones of Prayer by Timothy Keller, Part 3: What It Gives

This post focus on the next 3 Touchstones of Prayer from chapter nine of Timothy Keller’s book, Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God.

Part 3, What It Gives:

  • Perspective: Prayer reorients your view toward God.
    “Prayer brings new perspective because it puts God back into the picture.”
  • Strength: Prayer is spiritual union with God.
    “Prayer is the way that all the things we believe in and that Christ has won for us actually become our strength.”
  • Spiritual Reality: Prayer seeks a heart sense of the presence of God.
    “Through prayer our somewhat abstract knowledge of God becomes existentially real to us.”

Your turn… Which one of these  resonates with you the most today?
