He who counts the stars and calls them by their names is in no danger of forgetting His children.

The praying disciple needs to be taught the necessity of labor and the laboring disciple needs to be taught the necessity of prayer. When our men of devotion become men of diligence and our men of diligence become men of devotion, when there is a union of humble hearts and busy hands, then shall the wonders of the Gospel be spread fruitfully abroad. -Thomas Chalmers-
"Prayer is abandoning hope of independent capability and believing that in Christ you're given everything you need for life and godliness ...prayer decimates my independent self-surety; it puts my utter dependency before my eyes and calls me to cry out for the help that I am so often tempted to deny I need." - Paul David Tripp
