“The organized soul has one book beside the bed. The glutton sleeps with a
New York skyline lurching an inch from the bed.” –Charlotte Gray, poet
If God gave us favours without constraining us to pray for them we should never know how poor we are, but a true prayer is an inventory of wants, a catalogue of necessities, a revelation of hidden poverty. While it is an application to divine wealth, it is a confession of human emptiness.
~~C. H. Spurgeon, Morning and Evening Oct. 11
