∞ John Calvin on Prayer

On John Calvin's views on prayer:

“For John Calvin, prayer cannot be accomplished without discipline.

[…]

1. The first rule is a heartfelt sense of reverence.

[…]

2. The second rule is a heartfelt sense of need and repentance.

[…]

3. The third rule is a heartfelt sense of humility and trust in God.

[…]

4. The final rule is to have a heartfelt sense of confident hope.”

From John Calvin: A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine, and Doxology: Burk Parsons
