How do we achieve prayer greatness?
Recently we watched the movie Invictus, which is about Nelson Mandela, the South African Rugby team and the 1995 Rugby World Cup. There is a scene between Nelson Mandela and Fancois Pienaar (the captain of the South African Rugby) that has caught my attention:
Nelson Mandela: How do you inspire your team to do their best?
Francois Pienaar: By example. I’ve always thought to lead by example, sir.
Nelson Mandela: Well, that is right. That is exactly right. But how do we get them to be better than they think they CAN be? …. How do we inspire ourselves to greatness when nothing less will do? How do we inspire everyone around us?
This scene, along with some other events, has lead me to ask: How do I inspire myself to prayer greatness, to pray more: more deeply, more fervently, more intentionally? How do I inspire others to prayer greatness?
Oh Lord, may you motivate your people to pray more deeply, more fervently and more intentionally and may you start with me.
