Several years ago, Christian author and pastor, Tim Keller, was asked on Twitter, “Why do you think young Christian adults struggle with God as a personal reality in their lives?” His reply, “Noise and distraction. It is easier to Tweet than pray!” For all the many benefits of digital technology, we are tempted to get distracted from prayer by tweets and our Facebook feeds and texts and emails on our phone." When asked what counsel he would give to a Christian who finds himself or herself lured to distractions when they are trying to pray, his response was this: “There is no way around just simply saying: This is something that I must spend time doing." Our study of 1 Timothy 2 has led us to explore the reasons why God has made prayer so important. Today we consider the third and final reason: Praying fulfills our duty to join our King in heaven as He advances His kingdom on earth.
