But I think the concepts and teachings within this book are worth considering deeply. I suspect that they have personally given the crops in my life the opportunity to bear fruit in a season where the land seemed barren. There are several statements that Batterson made that struck me with wisdom:
- Who you become is determined by how you pray.
- Prayer is a litmus test of faith. Do you trust God even when you don't get what you prayed for?
- When prayers go unanswered, we must choose to believe that God has a better plan.
- Praying starts with discerning what God wants and what God wills. Until His soverign will becomes your sanctified wish, your prayer life will be unplugged from its power supply.
