This is Rob Barkman from Settled in Truth Ministries. His teachings have been wonderful to this point and I think he makes a good exegesis here.
I think daily about these words of Jesus: “Apart from Me you can do nothing.” I am a dependent man who needs God’s strength. The older I get the more simple my prayers to my Friend become. They are specific, non-repetitive (at the time), and sometimes painful.
My best example always answers them one way or another.
