PRAY 5/13/20



“Prayer obtains fresh and continued outpourings of the Spirit. He alone begins the work of grace in a man’s heart. He alone can carry it forward and make it prosper. But the good Spirit loves to be entreated. And those who ask most will have most of his influence. .”

                                                                                  – J. C. Ryle


“For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who live by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For…you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father.’” (Romans 8:13-15)
