He's right. If nothing is at stake, we don't need prayer--or Christ, for that matter.
But so much IS at stake. And prayer is at the heart of following Christ.

Why do we fail to include more prayer in our daily life?
This video really captures the idea of relying on prayer while doing the hard things of life. We are often caught up in the luxeries of the American Christian life rather than fully being devoted to Christ in everything we do. When we are truly relying on Christ's mission and what He calls us to do we need to be constantly in prayer. We need to be focused and centered around prayer gaining our strength from God. Without prayer we are weak, and attempting to do things on our own. Platt mentioned that we are capable of doing things on our own (Watching TV and surfing the internet) however, things that are meaningful for building the Kingdom is another story. We need to focus on the Lord's Great Commission and truly be devoted to prayer in our lives.
I thank David Platt for making this video and challenging us to really think about what matters to us as believers. We need to be devoted to prayer to follow God and His mission for us.
Thanks and God Bless!

The words spoken are good. Does his own life demonstrate taking risks. Is he talking by example or talking like he is a TV - one-way communication from behind a pulpit? Is he interested in a personal response from me and other believers?
