“Unless I’m badly mistaken, one of the main reasons so many of God’s children don’t have a significant prayer life is not so much that we don’t want to…but that we don’t plan to.

If you want to take a four-week vacation, you don’t just get up one summer morning and say, ‘Hey, let’s go today!’ You won’t have anything ready. You won’t know where to go. Nothing has been planned.

But that is how many of us treat prayer. We get up day after day and realize that significant times of prayer should be a part of our life…but nothing’s ever ready. We don’t know where to go. Nothing has been planned. No time. No place. No procedure.”

“If you want renewal in your life of prayer, you must plan to see it.”

~ John Piper
