Desiring prayer – seeing prayer as rest rather than work1 min read

Listen to this article

What good is another sermon on HOW to pray if no one is praying in the first place?  How do we, then, motivate ourselves to pray, which is a central Christian discipline?  The key to maintaining discipline is to maintain desire, and the key to maintaining desire is maintaining an motivating vision.    Based on the story of Elijah in the desert (1 Kings 19), I discuss the characteristics of prayer, including:

  • REST for our souls
  • REGURGITATION of grievances
  • RENEWAL of our perspective
  • REFOCUSING of our plans for the future
  • RUNNING the race
