What My Family Needs Most

From Paul Miller’s excellent book, A Praying Life:

When our kids were teenagers, Jill asked me, “Do you know what our family needs most?”

Lots of things came to mind, including a newer car.  Her one-word answer took me completely by surprise: “mercy.”

We didn’t need to get more organized.  We didn’t need more money.  We needed mercy.

That mind-set creates a praying heart. (pg. 68)
