Today marks the 500th birthday of John Calvin, the father of Reformed Theology. To commemorate the occasion on Prayer Plain and Simple, I’d like to share a quote from him on prayer:
“Our prayer must not be self-centered. It must arise not only because we feel our own need as a burden we must lay upon God, but also because we are so bound up in love for our fellow men that we feel their need as acutely as our own. To make intercession for men is the most powerful and practical way in which we can express our love for them.”
Who do you need to pray for today?
