Lessons from the School of Prayer (and more)

Gunner Gundersen posted this excellent list of ways to strengthen your prayer life, which are the notes from D.A. Carson’s A Call to Spiritual Reformation. My friend Brett already reposted it, but it was so good I figured I repost it here for all my readers (all three of you).

By the way, Gunner’s blog (Raw Christianity) is worth a look. Much wisdom to be found there. Like this and this.

He has a way of being succinct with big truths:

  1. Time flies when you’re having fun, and when you’re wasting time.
  2. Just because you’ve always dreamed of doing something doesn’t mean you should do that something when the opportunity arises.
  3. The finding of balance is a great blessing, and a great problem.
  4. Write from your heart, not for your resumé.
  5. Diligent preparation separates the gifted from the great.
  6. Success is impossible without failure.
  7. Embarrassment is one handmaiden to learning.
  8. Avoiding hard teachers will get you better grades, and you will have your reward in full.
  9. The most contentious moral issues of our day are answered by the wonder, joy, and responsibility of family.
  10. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
