Prayerful Praying

by on February 2, 2011

Since we studied prayer this past Sunday I thought it would be appropriate to point you to these resources:

I don’t recall hearing a more convicting and also encouraging talk on this subject.

The talk was taken from chapter 12 of the book Taking Hold of God: Reformed and Puritan Perspectives on Prayer, edited by Joel Beeke and Brian Najapfour. I highly recommend it.

Here is one of the quotes from Thomas Brooks (Works 2:256):

God looks not at the elegancy of your prayers, to see how neat they are;
nor yet at the geometry of your prayers, to see how long they are;
nor yet at the arithmetic of your prayers, to see how many they are;
nor yet at the music of your prayers, nor yet at the sweetness of your voice, nor yet at the logic of your prayers;
but at the sincerity of your prayers, how hearty they are.

(HT: JT)

Here’s the link to Joel Beeke’s message: Leading Family Worship

The message is from Desiring God’s Pastor’s Conference which is going on right now, and it’s topic is prayer. These messages are great for everyone though, not only pastors. Here’s a link to all of them:
