Men Who Do Not Pray

The fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. (1 Corinthians 3:13)

The indications are all around us in Christianity that we are greatly in need of worshipers.

We have a lot of men who are willing to sit on our church boards but have no desire for spiritual joy and radiance and who never show up for the church prayer meeting!

It has always seemed to me to be a frightful incongruity that men who do not pray and do not worship are nevertheless running many of the churches and ultimately determining the direction they will take.

It hits very close to our own situation, perhaps, but we should confess that in many “good churches,” we let the women do the praying and let the men do the voting!

God calls us to worship, but in many instances we are majoring in entertainment, just running a poor second to the theater. This is where we are, even in evangelical churches. Yet God’s first call to us is for the offering of true worship!
