Tim Keller, Senior Pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, recently posted his regiment of daily prayer. It is great to see what leaders in the church do regularly to maintain their connection with God. There was a lot to like about his short post, but a couple things did stand out to me.
- I appreciated how he dealt with not keeping to his plan. He just laid it out there. It happens, but he strives to maintain the routine because he know he is effected by it.
- He has a commitment to pray daily with his wife. I strongly believe in this practice but hear very little on it. It was refreshing. I also liked his presentation. This is what I do. This is why I do it. We are glad we are committed to it. There is a strong call to follow his example as a man who is a respected Christian leader believes in it strongly. But, at the same time, there is no hint of condemnation for those who don’t do it.
Thank you, Tim Keller, for sharing your thoughts and practices on daily prayer. May God continue to bless your life and ministry.
