Prayer and Meditation on God's Word Inseparable

30 Nov

Quote from John Piper’s book, When I Don’t Desire God: How to Fight for Joy.

Available for free here in pdf format at Desiring God ministries.

[P]rayer and meditation are inseparable. The fight for joy always involves both. Prayer without meditation on the Word of God will dis- integrate into humanistic spirituality. It will simply reflect our own fallen ideas and feelings—not God’s. And meditation, without the humility of desperate prayer, will create proud legalism or hopeless despair (p. 144).
