If you're easily distracted when praying, you're not alone. In fact, if you struggle to pray in the first place, that's not unusual either. Tim Chester tells us how we can be great pray-ers. And he admits that that's a really bold claim.
"The secret of great praying has nothing to do with human effort or skill,"? he explains. "Lots of people would like to think that it does because they want to make prayer an achievement."? But the secret of great praying is knowing three things about God:
- That God the Father loves to hear us pray
- That God the Son makes every prayer pleasing to God
- That God the Holy Spirit helps us as we pray
Tim looks at why prayer is easy (how we pray), why prayer is difficult (why we pray) and the arguments and priorities of prayer (what we pray). Prayer is a child asking his father for help - and that's not beyond any one of us.
