D. L. Moody on the Bible

I prayed for faith, and thought that some day faith would come down and strike me like lightning. But faith did not seem to come. One day I read in the tenth chapter of Romans, “Now faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” I had closed my Bible, and prayed for faith.  I now opened my Bible, and began to study, and faith has been growing ever since.
–  D. L. Moody (1837-1899), American evangelist
