 The church does not pray

here is a quote from Keith Daniel

Jesus warned; You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt hath lost its savor wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men." Forgive me, but it seems that's what's happening in most of the world today towards the church. They don't want it, they just despise it, they're trampling; it's just. While men slept the enemy came, and this enemy in his terrifying power, and liberty, has strewn across this world: in the evangelical churches multitudes, who say their saved, who are going to hell. Because, the church is not awake, because the church is not on its knees awake, in prayer crying out to God. That, no man compromising will be allowed in the pulpit. The preachers will be, no, the churches won't compromise in its music, in its dress code, and its whole testimony, and it's swallowed up in the world to win the world. No, the world's just won you, you didn't win the world. You want crowds, goodness me; was it worth it? While the church is allowed what the devil does, is amazing. I think the world finds it hard to distinguish anything different, apart for that you preach; about being saved from what?

 Re: Why Revival Tarries (book reading) CHAPTER ONE

1. Why is prayer less attractive than many other types of ministry?

With other areas of ministry, one has the possibility of getting some glory and recognition. With prayer, God gets everything. All the attention, all the credit, all the glory. Prayer is 100 percent opposing to the flesh. A visible man speaking to the invisible God. Prayer puts you in a place where you are as purely dedicated to God as you will get during the day, or you are at your daily height of insanity.

2. How are logic and zeal meaningless apart from "unction"?

Because they are not born from above.

3. In what way is prayer your primary means of obtaining resources to share God's truth?

Because if He is not the source, we are guilty of being the church in Revelation that needs not to minister, but to repent. This is flesh working. We need God working.
