New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Most of all, this solidarity in prayer means that I am not alone, even when I pray by myself.  Luther says, "Never think that you are kneeling or standing alone, rather think that the whole of Christendom, all devout Christians, are standing there beside you and you are standing among them in a common united petition which God cannot disdain." -- Dr. John Kleinig, *Grace upon Grace* p. 206.
