When you pray, you’re asking God to become a part of your life and become messy. Yes, even the all-powerful God cleans. There is no doubt in our minds that he takes care of his feet.

Praying With Paul: A Call To Spiritual Reformation by D.A. Carson

Why is it that the apostle Paul regularly speaks of his prayers? The receivers of his letters know that he is praying for them in practically every one of them.

Carson studies Paul’s prayers in this great work on prayer and comes up with some excellent ideas. This book will teach you how to pray like Paul.

It is his preference that his people live a life of disciplined appreciation and holy delight, rather than a life of forceful self-reliance and glittering enjoyment. He prefers.
