Conscience captive to Scripture – Martin Luther

Conscience captive to Scripture – Martin Luther

I consider myself convicted by the testimony of Holy Scripture, which is my basis; my conscience is captive to the Word of God. Thus I cannot and will not recant, because acting against one’s conscience is neither safe nor sound. God help me. Amen.

Don’t be lazy in prayer – Martin Luther

Don’t be lazy in prayer – Martin Luther

We must be careful not to break the habit of true prayer and … become lax and lazy, cool and listless toward prayer. The devil who besets us is not lazy or careless, and our flesh is too ready and eager to sin and is disinclined to the spirit of prayer.
