Alexander Whyte (Prayer)

Every kind of prayer, not intercessory prayer only, which is the highest kind of prayer, but all prayer, from the lowest kind to the highest, is impossible in a life of known and allowed sin.

Alexander Whyte (Preacher, 1836 – 1921)

What he is saying, is that our sin interferes with our prayer life according to Scripture. God will only hear the prayer of repentance, before He starts answering any of our other prayers. For we need to be right with God in order to have our prayers answered. They are all heard, but not necessarily answered in the affirmative if we are in sin.

Alexander Whyte (Comfort)

You do not really care for God’s mercy or His comfort either, so long as you live in any sin. And it is well that you do not; for you can have neither. Your peace will be like a river, when you put away your sin; but not one word of true peace, not one drop of true comfort, can you have till then.

Alexander Whyte (Preacher, 1836 – 1921)

Washington Gladden (This Very Hour)

No, there are no long stages of preparation through which you must pass; all things are now ready; there is nothing to hinder you from becoming a Christian this very hour. And, if any of you have been trying to make yourself better until you are weary and discouraged in the work, all you have to do is to put it into stronger hands.

Washington Gladden (Writer, 1836 – 1918)

This quote is speaking about giving your life to Jesus Christ, to be your Lord and Savior. Jesus stands at the door of your heart at this very moment and knocks, asking to be let in, so that He can help you begin a new life, full of purpose and meaning. May you choose to open the door of your heart and invite Him in, so that you can really begin to live a life with purpose and meaning. Just pray in Jesus’ name that He enter into your life and enjoy the journey!!!!!!!!

Washington Gladden (Good Enough)

If you were good enough, there would be no need of confessing Christ at all. It is just because you are not good enough, that Christ says to you, “Follow me.” He came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. It is not the perfect people whom He wants in His church, but those who have a deep sense of their own imperfection, and who believe that His strength is made perfect in weakness.
