well i wouldn’t say that timothy keller is life-changing. There really are some parts of his writing where I am just merely going through banter and I am not sure if there is any real point to be made.
But I am reading Prayer right now and some parts of it has been rather insightful, though I am not sure if anything really hits home. He uses very comfy language in my opinion, which, somewhat lacks oomph and conviction.
That said, I still feel my ideas about prayer are being challenged, and fresh stuff does enter my heart and soul.
David found the heart to pray when he received God’s Word of promise – that he would establish his throne and build him a house. Christians, however, have an infinitely greater Word of promise. God will not merely build us a house, he will make us HIS house. He will fill us with his presence, beauty and glory. Every time Christians merely remember who they are in Christ, that great word comes home to us and we will find, over and over, a heart to pray.
