Bloesch: the use of prayer

Saturday, October 20, 2012
Praise the LORD.
Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,
    who finds great delight in his commands.
    —Psalm 112:1 (NIV)
    Christian prayer is personal, loving address. One does not seek to use God for one’s own ends but instead to find out the will of God for one’s life. One does not passively resign oneself to the will of God but actively seeks to discover this will and then to apply it to the whole of life.
    ... Donald G. Bloesch (1928-2010), The Struggle of Prayer, Harper & Row, 1980, p. 53 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I seek Your will for me.
