I am 40 years old. I’ve been a Christian for many years. And I still feel like a baby in prayer.
Here is a money quote from Bridges on prayer:
The more prayer, the more dependency; the more dependency, the more power. The source of power is not the prayer; it is the Holy Spirit, who uses prayer as a means of grace through which he provides the power.”
This will change your praying. Remember, praying is not the end, it is a means to an end. Namely, God himself. Bridges rightly reminds us that prayer is yet another means of the grace of God in our lives, for which I am deeply thankful.
