I’m slowly reading this book on prayer by Tim Keller, Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God. Having heard how he speaks, it takes several times listening to a talk to digest and get the denseness of thought that he presents. Same thing with the book.
One chapter talked about praying to God requires that I know who I’m talking to. That’s reasonable; that makes sense. Who is this God? It cannot be just be what I hope or wish God could be. My own imagination isn’t swift and smart enough to conceive of a God big and strong enough that can get me through the storms and challenges of life.
