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 4, Where It Takes Us:
- Self-Knowledge: Prayer requires and creates honesty and self-knowledge.
“Prayer must eventually take us beyond a mere sense of insufficiency into deep honesty with ourselves.”
- Trust: Prayer requires and creates both restful trust and confident hope.
“The final thought of every prayer must be for the help we need to accept thankfully from God’s hand whatever he sends in his wisdom.”
- Surrender: Prayer requires and creates surrender of the whole life in love to God.
“You should not begin to pray for all you want until you realize that in God you have all you need.”
Your turn… Which one of these resonates with you the most today?
