prayer: my nothing and God’s everything

Yet again, another picture painted in Future Grace that reminds me that God is the bountiful Giver and I am the needy receiver:

“Prayer has the wonderful capacity to highlight our emptiness and God’s fullness at the same time. It is wonderfully suited to express our inadequacy and God’s all-sufficiency. When prayer looks away from our flaws and deficiencies to God for His future grace, He gets the glory He deserves and we get the good we need.” — John Piper
