Why We Need to Pray

This Sunday I'll be speaking on prayer from Ephesians 1:15-23. I came across the following quote from D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, a famous British preacher who died in 1981. If you have been following the Ephesians teaching series at Oxford Bible Fellowship or through the web you know we've been in some pretty heavy theology, so we really need this quote.

The ultimate test of my understanding of the scriptural teaching is the amount of time I spend in prayer. As theology is ultimately the knowledge of God, the more theology I know, the more it should drive me to seek to know God. Not to know "about" Him but to know Him! The whole object of salvation is to bring me to knowledge of God...If all my knowledge does not lead me to prayer there is something wrong somewhere.

Read more from Lloyd-Jones here.
