Karl Barth on Christian Prayer

It is unfortunate that Karl Barth is mostly read by only theologians. He has so much to teach the Church in practical ways. I appreciate his words on Christian prayer.

Karl BarthChristian prayer means thanksgiving and praise, then confession and intercession, and then again thanksgiving and praise: all directed toward God; all offered to Him; all spread out before Him; all commended to Him with absolutely empty hands; all with the intention  of committing oneself wholly and utterly to Him.
