In Sunday’s message I pointed out that one of the best ways God gets his people to pray is to bring suffering. We often wish better discipline would lead to more praying. But God knows that our distress is a more effective means to bring us to our knees and ask him to glorify himself through our trouble, or that of another.
But that reality doesn’t absolve us of the need to grow in the discipline of prayer.
Here are some resources I’ve found helpful, both to instruct me in prayer and to inspire me to pray more.
