This conversation stems from a Bible study that David, Jeff and I helped with last summer on prayer. A subject that, to be brutally honest, I was not interested in talking about. I’m not really sure what my pet topic was, but I thought it was better than Prayer. Which of course only shows off the depth of my ignorance and self delusion.
After the study I was pretty jazzed about prayer and developing a rich Prayer Life. This Prayer Life involved getting up earlier than normal, setting a timer and buckling down to try and concentrate and prayer for a full solid uninterrupted 15 minutes every morning. And that was going to make me a better person, better husband, better father, better everything.
I’m sure you can all guess what happened next. I was able to keep that regimen for about a week, then life kept interfering. I’m not sure how Billy Graham does it, but I couldn’t maintain that regimen. I kept trying to hop back on the bandwagon, but it was a failure. And then I got to feel guilty about not having a rich Prayer Life. It ended up being counterproductive.
So what’s the big deal about Prayer? I mean, come on. How important is it, really?
It turns out, very important.
I know I say, “I enjoyed our conversation…” seemingly every episode, but I do. And I did. We talked with Jeff for almost two hours, so we had more than enough for three full episodes. The time just flew, and I for one, had a good time. And learned plenty.
When we come up with our Biggest Hits of 2015 episode, we will definitely have clips from this one.
