"There cannot be genuine prayer till there is a genuine faith in God,
and genuine faith in God cannot in our day be attained except by a continual dwelling in the word.
It is in the word we make His acquaintance, both as to what He has done,
what He has promised, what He desires in us, and what He is in Himself.
These things are not learnt by looking at the sky, the sea, the mountains, or any other features of nature. God had to reveal Himself for us to know Him."
