Our generation desperately needs to rediscover the difference between praying for and praying through. Praying through is grabbing hold of the horns of the altar and refusing to let go until God answers.
I grew up hearing that phrase praying through, but how quickly we pray one-and-done prayers! There is such a power in praying through. May I learn to do this better!
By the way, The Circle Maker is an excellent book on prayer (you can read my review of it by clicking here).
