For a while I've had in mind to write a post on the essence of men's trouble in today's world. Now I don't have to...Dan at Cerulean Sanctum has nailed it. Here's his conclusion, but go read the rest, it's great.
what [men] get from the church on Sunday doesn’t have enough steam to get them past the gauntlet of potential incompetence they must run through the rest of the week. The car breaks down, and it’s so complex they can’t fix it. When their kids ask for help on algebra, they can’t do it. They can’t work enough hours in the week to avoid the offshoring due to hit their company. They can’t meet all the requirements the parachurch ministry says they must meet to be a Christian husband. They don’t even know where to start in prayer to address all these lacks. So they don’t even try.
And that’s my take on why men today don’t pray.
Well said, Sir Dan.
