“Be always praying” by Thomas Brooks

“A Christian must not only pray, but hold on in prayer, until he hath got the heavenly prize. We are daily in want, and therefore we have need to be praying daily. The world is always alluring, therefore we have need to be always praying.

Satan is always tempting, therefore we have need to be always praying. And we are always sinning, and therefore we have need to be always praying. And we are in danger always, and therefore we have need to be praying always.”

–Thomas Brooks, “The Privy Key of Heaven, Or Twenty Arguments For Closet Prayer” in The Complete Works of Thomas Brooks (Edinburgh: James Nichol, 1866), 2:199.
