John Owen on how Sincere Prayer has the Ability to Produce a Remarkable Loathing of sin

February 6, 2016

"But that prayer we speak of is a thing of another nature, a thing that will allow no composition with sin, much less will serve the ends of the deceit of it, as the other, formal prayer, doth. It will not be bribed into secret compliance with any of the enemies of God or the soul, no, not for a moment. And hence it is that oftentimes in this duty the heart is raised to the most sincere, effectual sense of sin and detestation of it that the ever obtains in its whole course of obedience. And this evidently tends also to the weakening and ruin of the law of sin."
