Alistair Begg on Preaching and Praying

“There is no chance of fire in the pews if there is an iceberg in the pulpit; and without personal prayer and communion with God during the preparation stages, the pulpit will be cold…To borrow from the marriage ceremony, it is imperative that ‘what God has joined together, no man should put asunder.’  We dare not divorce our preaching from our praying.”
