"One of the best ways to discover a Christian's chief anxieties and ambitions is to study the content of his prayers and the intensity with which he prays them. We all pray about what concerns us, and are evidently not concerned about matters we do not include in our prayers. Prayer expresses desire....As the hymn puts it, 'Prayer is the soul's sincere desire, uttered or unexpressed.'"
- John Stott

  1. Just found this from Liz's blog. You have no idea how much I like quotes... I probably like them more than the rest of you put together. :>)

    Anyway, good idea. And yes, I need to work on my prayer life (read: relationship with God).
