CQOD: 09/08/06 -- Law: the school of prayer

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 8, 2006
    Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples."
    -- Luke 11:1 (ESV)

    They, therefore, who are hasty in their devotions and think a little will do, are strangers both to the nature of devotion and the nature of man; they do not know that they are to learn to pray, and that prayer is to be learnt as they learn other things, by frequency, constancy, and perseverance.
    ... William Law (1686-1761)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, teach me to pray.
