Kenneth Hagin - not John Wesley.I know, I know, snappy title for a blog entry...
But anyone know where this quote comes from? Is it even Wesley? I see it attributed to him all over the place but cannot find a reference for it. Most of the references I have found on the internet are from people like Kenneth Hagin, Creslo Dollar, and others, who, frankly, are the kind of word of faith / prosperity teachers that make extremely cross.
Thing is, I don't think the sentiment of the quote is true. I'm all for spurring people to pray but God can't do anything unless we ask him to?! I find that hard to accept if God is all sovereign and all powerful.
Hence I want to find out if anyone knows where the quote is from as I think I would like to see it in context. It's a long shot... but you never know.
