If you are connected in any way to mainline (particularly American) evangelicalism then you have probably said or heard the following said countless times in the last two years:
“I need to get back in the Word.”
“My prayer life has been kinda dry lately.”
Often times these “confessions” come in the midst of small groups or in response to some eager, well-meaning brother or sister. How do we respond?
Most often it is with the super-spiritual, muppet-faced grimacing sigh: “Hmm. Hmm. I will pray for you that God would help you get back in the Word.”
Is this helpful?
