The Object of All True Praying

Alan Redpath on prayer:

The object of all true praying, you see, is not to bend the will of God to mine, but to get my will in line with His… Real prayer does not begin by attempting to persuade God to do something contrary to His will, but starts with worship and adoration, the prostration of my heart and spirit before the throne in utter surrender [Victorious Praying: Studies in the Lord’s Prayer (Grand Rapids: Fleming H. Revell, 1993), 18].
