1. Let me start the ball rolling by quoting Christian apologist, Ravi Zacharias and well-known Christian psychologist and author, Dr. Larry Crabb: Ravi: "Prayer is not the means of bringing our will to pass but the means by which He brings our will into line to gladly receive His will." Larry: "Only on the ground of relationship with God, restored through redemption and nourished through relational prayer, can we properly worship, unselfishly thank God for blessings, intercede for others, and ask things for ourselves." "If we keep believing that prayer is more about getting things than getting God, not only will we eventually get thoroughly confused when prayer doesn't 'work,' but talking to God will at some point feel boring as well. If we're honest." 2. I personally think these are some soul-searching quotes on what really is involved in our prayer life.
