Prayer is one of the oldest and most sacred practices of Christianity. For thousands of year, people have been praying to God, seeking His guidance, and looking for answers. Prayer is woven into the DNA of Christianity and the Bible. It is foundational to our relationship with God. In Wasted Prayer
Greg Darley shines a light on the truth that sometimes saying prayers falls shot of what God wants us to do. There are times when only action can accomplish the miracle that we desire. This book challenges us to learn that there is a time to pray and a time to act.
Action to move can take incredible faith. We must earn that the life of faith is one of adventure and excitement. It is also one of fear and uncertainty. The key is to find a way around the fear and seize the adventure God desires for your life. Sometimes the key can be to stop praying and start doing. Prayer should never be an obstacle to accomplishing what God has called you to do. The author explains t us that pray can be a great way to prepare for action, but we should not just settle for preparation. Following Jesus has always been about action. If there is no action in your life, you aren't following Jesus. This may be the day to stop praying about what God wants us to do and start doing it.
I found this book to be very challenging and thought provoking. I give it 5 stars.
