Abraham Lincoln on Why Americans Don’t Pray

I recently read an article which said that the average American Christian spends only 15-30 minutes in prayer every week. Here is a powerful quote from Abraham Lincoln on just that subject:

“Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.”

-Abraham Lincoln
