What Produces Prayer

This morning I had the (unexpected) privilege of preaching on prayer, which reminded me of this quote from Matt Chandler:

When the illusion of control disappears we become men and women of prayer.

He should know; he's currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatment for a malignant brain tumor. Of course I pray that it doesn't take that for me to learn this lesson, but what a valuable lesson it is to know.

  1. How true. WHen we are face with the "illusion" that we are not in control then we increase our prayer life. Sad I don't want to communicate with the one who created all things, loved me enough to die for me and it takes feeling have no other alternative but to pray. Father please forgive me for my arrogance.
