Benjamin Morgan Palmer on prayer

“The intelligent recognition of creature-helplessness is the kneeling posture of the soul in prayer. It is the thirst of ignorance drinking deep draughts from the overflowing fullness of divine wisdom. It is the exhaustion of weakness drawing nerve into a broken will from the resources of infinite strength.” – Benjamin Morgan Palmer, 19th c. Southern Presbyterian pastor in New Orleans
