“If prayer is really you steering wheel, then how often do you put your hands on the wheel? And how often do you watch TV, sports, or entertainment?”  -Johnson and Pearl

“Prayerless people will always lack direction and purpose.  Prayerless people will always be ignorant of God’s will and heart.”  -Johnson and Pearl

The unrepentant sinners of the world have no meaningful direction, purpose, and destination.  Their only direction is money, fame, food, sex, or pleasure.  Their only purpose is “me first".  And their only destination is death and hell after death.”   -Johnson and Pearl
