“No man is greater than his prayer life.”

                                                                                 – Leonard Ravenhill

As Jesus said, “Apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).  It is not that we are as frozen men entirely apart from Christ, for surely men are apart from Christ who have not believed, and yet they still walk, talk, eat, drink, work, etc., but that they can do no thing eternally fruitful, no thing that glorifies God, no thing that merits any sort of righteousness with God – apart from Christ.  As He is the vine, so we do well to abide in Him.  Ravenhill is right – no man is greater than his prayer life, for it is by prayer that we tap into the life giving sap of Christ’s excellencies and the vitality of His life.
