Let the Gospel Lead You, A Sinner, To Prayer

“The gospel should lead us to pray, ‘God be merciful to me, a sinner. Please take away all the unrighteousness of self that fills me and fill me with all that I am missing — the righteousness of Jesus Christ.’… You are too sinful not to pray; sinners are the very people who need prayer. Therefore, pray” (James W. Beeke and Joel R. Beeke, Developing A Healthy Prayer Life, 3).
