Do you know anybody who wants to work out *every* time? Unlikely. But nobody who gets in that workout says afterwards, “That was a waste of time. Why’d I bother?”


Even more with prayer. When you take the time, it’s always, “I’m so glad I did that.”


Eternal perspective changes how you use your time. What are we made for? To live forever. Our decisions now have an effect on that. We’re made to be fully alive starting now.


When you grow in prayer, your heart grows in capacity. And you take that capacity—an expansive heart with deep desires—with you to heaven. Let God expand your heart.
