None but an eminently praying man is a safe religious teacher. However scientific and literary, if he were not a praying man, he cannot be trusted.

“A spirit of prayer is of much greater value than human learning without it. If I were to choose, I would prefer intercourse with God in prayer before the intellect of Gabriel. I do not say this to disparage the value of learning and knowledge, for when great talents and learning are sanctified with much prayer, the result is a mind of mighty power.”—Charles Finney (emphasis his)
