Dangerous Prayers

Posted by Chris on May 18, 2008

From the Desiring God blog

Do you ever feel reluctant to pray “whatever it takes” prayers for fear that God might actually answer them? The fear is misplaced. The real danger lies in settling for less.

HT: Jon Bloom

I had some whatever it takes type prayers answered the last few days. It’s scary. It is challenging and stretching me and making me feel awkward this very instant. But it’s real, man. It casts light into the dark parts of my heart– like the glare of the sun in the morning, burning the eyes. It produces warmth in cold places– like the tingling of your fingers when you come in from shoveling snow. It is stretching me, making me feel. I think it will grow on me.
