I have just read John Piper’s exhortation that we should NOT look at the habit of praying and meditating on scripture for 2 hours daily and think it impossible to do in our culture. Prayer in the foundation, source and sustainer of ALL that we are and do and yet it is the first thing that we neglect in the busyness of life and ministry. No wonder the church lacks power when we pray for a mere 10 15, 30 mins a day. Instead of prayer being our ‘air’ which we need to breathe constantly, it has become a healthy snack which we make sure we take, but in moderation.
I will quote some of the Piper chapter later.
