The December issue of Simple Grace features an exclusive interview with pastor and writer Max Lucado. Here's a sneek peak at some of the prayer wisdom he shared with us:
“The temptation is to turn our prayer time into just a shopping list,” Max says. “Instead we should think of bringing our requests to God as wanting to spend time with Him. The mistake is we put the power of prayer in the one who prays. But the power of prayer is not in the one who prays or the way we pray—the power of prayer is in the One who hears the prayer. We shouldn’t ever let prayer time become dependent upon the way we pray, but instead should make prayer time about God’s good heart.”
