Prayer… exercising our faith!

Philip Yancey“I used to worry about my deficiency of faith. In my prayers I expect little and seemed satisfied with less. Faith feels like a gift that a person either has or lacks, not something that can be developed by exercise, like a muscle. My attitude is changing, though, as I begin to understand faith as a form of engagement with God. I may not be able to summon up much belief in miracles, or dream big dreams, but I can indeed exercise my faith by engaging with God in prayer.”
