"Power in preaching comes from a strong faith that is qualified by wisdom. Preaching is faith speaking; that is what it means to preach in the power of the Spirit. And faith and confident praying are two sides of the same coin. Basically I am convinced that men who do not make praying their first priority in life and ministry should not preach or pastor. As preachers they will be confused models of a Christian man, and as shepherds of the sheep they will not show a willingness to die for the sheep. Their spirit will inevitably drift in the wrong direction'
