why you need to pray

More from Thomas Brooks.

No man knows what mercies a day may bring forth; no man knows what miseries a day may bring forth; no man knows what good a day may bring forth; no man knows what evil a day may bring forth; no man knows what afflictions a day may bring forth; no man knows what temptations a day may bring forth; no man knows what liberty a day may bring forth; no man knows what bonds a day may bring forth; no man knows what good success a day may bring forth; no man knows what bad success a day may bring forth; and therefore, a man had need be every day in his closet with God, that he may be prepared and fitted to entertain and improve all the occurrences, successes, and emergencies that may attend him in the course of his life.

Thomas Brooks, The Secret Key to Heaven Banner of Truth edition 2006, p103. First published 1665.
