Preaching + Prayer = Power

29 Oct

“All preaching must be prayerful, because no preaching is effective unless God is at work in it. We can plant and water as much as we like, but without God there will be no growth (1 Cor 3:6). Indeed, without the powerful work of God’s Spirit within, there will be no understanding of the passage by the preacher, and no understanding and conviction within those who hear. We need God to be at work at every point in the process, and so we need to be in prayer at every point in the process.”

The Archer and the Arrow: Preaching the very word of God, by Phillip  D. Jensen and Paul Grimmond
