Matt Chandler: His Praying Is More Powerful Than Even His Preaching
But what struck me about Matt is something that people in the arena may not have caught. At the end of the message, he prayed with his eyes wide open. He addressed God respectfully, but in the manner of an intimate friend, he used first person pronouns--all the while looking at the pastors who were seated before him. Again, eyes wide open. Praying with intimacy, praying as comfortably and naturally as one who breathes. Spurgeon used to say you know the character of a man by not hearing what he says, but observing how he prays. It's evident to me Matt Chandler knows his God.
In His Grace,
