it was amazing
bookshelves: christian-spirituality
Read in April, 2009

David Benner explores what it means to pray "Father... not as I will, but as you will." I particularly enjoyed his distinction between willfulness vs. willingness, in the beginning; and some of the methods of paying attention to feelings as they provide clues to a person's spirit interacting with God's Spirit. But more than anything else, he encouraged people to pray the prayer of Jesus, actually to pray it, and to trust God to aid in the surrender of the will to God's will. For that encouragement I am grateful.
