Here is the next passage of Philip Yancy’s book “Prayer” that I wanted to share:
Persistent prayer keeps brings God and me together, with several important benefits. As I pour out my sould to God, I get it off my chest, so to speak, unloading some of my burden to One who can handle it better. Little by little, as I get to know God I learn that God has nothing in common with an unjust judge or a stingy neighbor, though at times it may seem so. What I learn from spending time with God then better equips me to discern what God wants to do on earth, as well as my role in that plan.
