D.A. Carson on Mediocrity in Prayer

Standard

D. A. Carson comments on mediocrity as one of the excuses by Christians for not praying:

“Some Christians want enough of Christ to be identified with him but not enough to be

seriously inconvenienced; they genuinely cling to basic Christian orthodoxy but do not

want to engage in serious Bible study; they value moral probity, especially of the public

sort, but do not engage in war against inner corruptions; they fret over the quality of the

preachers sermon but do not worry much over the quality of their own prayer life. Such Christians are content with mediocrity.”

 

(Excerpt from A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and His Prayers by D.A. Carson Pages 111-121, as quoted from Third Millennium Ministries Newsletter )
