In His Presence

“How is your prayer life?” the well-meaning father asked his son. The bright, church-going 14-year-old shrugged his shoulders, “I don’t really pray that much.”

“Why not?” the concerned father pressed.

“I don’t really need anything.”

That honest teenager put words to what many of us are afraid to admit out loud—we don’t pray unless we need something.

In the following pages, staff writer Dennis Fisher takes a look at our common struggle to make time for God. Along the way, he gives us some practical pointers that will help us as we strive to pray, read God’s Word, and serve others in the process.
