The May issue of Simple Grace features an exclusive interview with author John Eldredge about his daily prayer habits. Here are a few fascinating extra tidbits that weren't featured in the story:
“God promised us results if we pray according to His will,” John explains. In order to make sure his prayers are focused correctly, John first asks God to be in everything he does. “I sit down to do a project—it might be something as big as a new book, it might be something as simple as an interview—I say ‘Jesus I give this to you and I make this part of your Kingdom now. Come and reign in this.’ That simple act of consecration brings it out of just ‘regular life’ and literally brings it under the rule of Jesus and into His Kingdom.”
