“Unless we plan to pray we will not pray.
The reason we pray so little is that we do not plan to pray.
Wise planning will ensure that we devote ourselves to prayer often,
even if for brief periods;
it is better to pray often with brevity than rarely bus at length.
But the worst option is simply not to pray—
and that will be controlling pattern unless we plan to pray.
If we intend to change our habit, we musts start here.”
D. A. Carson, A Call for Spiritual Reformation
