Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Every Christian should pray for himself, and for others, but especially for the needs of Christendom. For there are two things that sustain Christendom: God's Word and the prayers of Christians. Just as the Christian Church is sustained through God's Word and the ministry, so it is also sustained through the prayer of every individual Christian. -Blessed Martin Luther, Homily for Rogate (1534) HP II:109
