Tozer Devotional :: The Alliance
A.W. Tozer is one of my favorite authors. At his heart he is a worshiper and I almost always connect with his thoughts. This one comes from his online devotional. It has an RSS feed so I get it every morning in my Google Reader. Here is the money quote:
Many of us spoil our prayers by being too “dainty” with the Lord (as some old writer called it). We ask with the tacit understanding that the cost must be reasonable. After all, there is a limit to everything, and we do not want to be fanatical! We want the answer to be something added, not something taken away. We want nothing radical or out of the ordinary, and we want God to accommodate us at our convenience. Thus we attach a rider to every prayer, making it impossible for God to answer it.
