"Prayer is another way of telling God that we have all confidence in him but no confidence in our own native powers. Neglect of prayer is an effrontry to God , for by it we are saying that we have confidence in the fresh and can operate the spiritual life on a do-it-yourself basis. Strong men (self-strong) neglect prayer, or sometimes slight or ignore it, and therefore show their self-esteem and their near-independence of divine help. But weak men cry to God, because God' strength is guaranteed to be made perfect in their weakness. Is there one great man in the Bible-great, that is in spiritual accomplishments - who was not a man of prayer" - Leonard Ravenhill (Revival Praying - Bethany Fellowship Inc. 1970)
I am still wrestling with the above quote and would appreciate comments from anyone.
