Step 12: Pursue Gut-Level Honesty.

The Gospel means change from the inside out. Broken human nature wants to try to cover over the darkness within by creating a shiny surface.

The (Surprisingly) Comprehensive Wesley

One of the most attractive things about Wesley is his very active sense of God’s providence—God’s “particular providence,” as he sometimes said—in our own lives and in the whole of human history. The specially attractive aspect of this to me is that it pairs with Wesley’s high sense of personal responsibility and the resources of God’s grace to guide and provide and to continue the work of salvation in the world. So providence is miles removed from fate or fatalistic destiny.

It’s one thing to affirm the need for prayer, but it’s quite another to know what that looks like in practical life. We don’t live in a world very conducive to that sort of life, and it’s not clear that the church does a good job of teaching it. So here I’d like to offer a pattern for prayer that can help any Christian begin to build a rhythm of prayer into daily life.
