Acts 8:22 - William Button

"Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee." (Acts 8:22) It is further observed, Simon Magus was exhorted to pray to the Lord for pardon of sin. Who denies it? Prayer is a natural and moral duty binding on all men. But what has this to do with special faith? Why, says Mr. F. “spiritual blessings, all will allow, cannot be found but in the way of faith in Christ.” That is true; but they may be sought after in the use of means without that faith: and that is all which is here exhorted to, not to find or to get pardon of sin, but to pray for it.
