CQOD: 09/04/05 -- Phelps: prayer supplemented by action

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 4, 2005
Commemoration of Birinus, Bishop of Dorchester (Oxon), Apostle of Wessex, 650
    Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
    -- James 4:8 (NIV)

    Prayer is the preface to the book of Christian living; the test of the new life sermon; the girding on of armor for battle; the pilgrim’s preparation for his journey. It must be supplemented by action or it amounts to nothing.
    ... Arthur Stevens Phelps (1863-1948)

Quiet time reflection:
    May I be constantly reminded that the Lord's purposes are behind all my activities.
