I am not a good pray-er. I try not to pretend to be. As Bono might say, "I'm not easy on my knees." I have gone through seasons in my life when prayer was wonderful and meaningful and the sustenance of my life. And I have gone through seasons when I have not prayed at all. And it seems that I am always on the lookout for things that will help me be a better pray-er.
On Friday, a book arrived at Family Christian Store that immediately captivated me. It is The Papa Prayer by Larry Crabb. First, I am a huge Larry Crabb fan. His books have been formative in many ways in my life. Second, I was taken by the subtitle, "You think you know, but you have no idea. The prayer you've never prayed." I took home a copy, but didn't get to it. Until last night. I have now in two sittings read two-thirds of Crabb's book. And the subtitle is right. I had no idea. And I can't wait to start praying the Papa prayer. I will post more later about it, but something is stirring, Aslan is on the move, and I am getting very excited.
