New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The one thing that He [our Lord] emphasized about prayer, repeatedly and forcefully, was the importance of faith in Him and His Word rather than self-confidence and the presumption of spiritual expertise.  Jesus taught that God-pleasing prayer depended entirely on Him rather than the person at prayer. -- Dr. John Kleinig, *Grace upon Grace* p. 161,2.
