An Encouragement to Persevere

I'm amazed at the following two quotes taken together. Martyn Lloyd-Jones found nothing harder in the Christian life than to pray. Yet his closest companion can testify that nothing else in life took precedence. And that seems to be the difference between those who burn like the sun and the ones who are content to simply watch.

"Everything we do in the Christian life is easier than prayer." - Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Studies in the Sermon on the Mount.

"No one will understand my husband who does not realize that he was first...a man of prayer." - Bethan Lloyd-Jones
