Ryle: to be prayerless

Saturday, July 11, 2009
    Feast of Benedict of Nursia, Father of Western Monasticism, c.550

    The shepherds are senseless and do not inquire of the LORD; so they do not prosper and all their flock is scattered.
    —Jeremiah 10:21 (NIV)

    To be prayerless is to be without God, without Christ, without grace, without hope, and without heaven.
    ... J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), A Call to Prayer, published in the 1850's as a pamphlet, p. 1 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, teach us to pray in accordance with Your will.
