Christ, our Light

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Faith is to the soul what life is to the body. Prayer is to faith what breath is to the body. How a person can live and not breathe is past my comprehension, and how a person can believe and not pray is past my comprehension too.

J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), A Call to Prayer, published in the 1850’s as a pamphlet, p. 1 (see the book; see also Job 21:14-15; Isa. 64:7; Hab. 2:4; Zeph. 1:6; Rom. 1:17; 1 Thes. 5:17; more at Faith, Life, Prayer, Belief, People)
