Quotable

4 Feb

William Powell Frith_PrayerWhat need has God of our prayer? No need.

Can we tell him anything? No.

Does he not know what things we have need of before we ask him? Yes.

Why, then, should he call upon us to tell him what he knows, to ask him for what he well understands we need?

For our sakes. We learn things by doing them. We get answers by prayer, and in prayer.
