Quotemeal: Aug. 16th, 2018

Thursday, August 16, 2018

"Not only does sin hinder prayer; prayer hinders sin. The two are always opposed. The more careless we are about sin, the less we will pray. The more we pray, the less careless we will be about sin. Both sin and prayer are powerful forces. Which one is moving you?"
— Dr. Alvin Vander Griend
