Mission accomplished?

"Most Christians don't wake up in the morning thinking to themselves that God actually has something for them to do that day. But instead most Christians wake up and think to themselves, 'I have some things I would like to do today and I'm going to pray that God helps me.' So suddenly God becomes the means rather than the end."

  2. That Francis Chan sure knows how to hit home with his words. I'm afraid I've been guilty of that kind of prayer. Thanks Francis and Beck for opening my eyes to the profound difference in motivation.
