God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
A little girl went out to pray in the fresh snow. When she came in she said, "Mamma, I couldn't help praying when I was out at play." "What did you pray, my dear?" "I prayed the snow.prayer, mamma, that I once learned at the Sunday School: ' Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.'" "What a beautiful prayer! And here is a sweet promise to go with it: 'Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.'" And what can wash them white, clean from every stain of sin? The Bible answers, "They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
