Afraid to pray?

During the Civil War a beautiful, highly educated, and popular young woman fell into prostitution. Just before she died, at the age of 22, she wrote that she was dying alone, too wicked for a prayer.*

Don’t let sin keep you from prayer. Jesus is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him (Hebrews 7:25).

*adapted from John MacArthur, The MacArthur New Testament Commentary Matthew 1-7, p.305-306.
