Without Prayer

 

"Bibles read without prayer; sermons heard without prayer; marriages contracted without prayer; journeys undertaken without prayer; residences chosen without prayer; friendships formed without prayer; the daily act of prayer itself hurried over, or gone through without heart: these are the kind of downward steps by which many a Christian descends to a condition of spiritual palsy, or reaches the point where God allows them to have a tremendous fall."  
--J.C. Ryle

Exactly! Unless the Lord builds the house, the worker labors in vain. When will we learn? Excellent quote.

Very true! The Bible tells us to "pray constantly" - but how many of us really do?
