CHRISTIANS: Lead a Life of Prayer

The one who would succeed in the Christian life must lead a life of prayer. Very much of the failure in Christian living today, and in Christian work, results from neglect of prayer. Very few Christians spend as much time in prayer as they ought.


A prayerless Christian is a contradiction in terms. Just as a still-born child is a dead one, so a professing believer who does not pray is devoid of spiritual life. Prayer is the breath of the new nature in the holy one, as the Word of God is its food.

PRAYER: What Tendencies Are to Be Avoided?

THERE are two extreme tendencies in the ministry. The one is to shut itself out from intercourse with the people. The monk, the hermit were illustrations of this; they shut themselves out from men to be more with God. The other tendency is to thoroughly popularize the ministry. He is no longer God’s man, but a man of affairs, of the people. He prays not, because his mission is to the people.

ABIDING IN CHRIST: The Power of Prayer

“If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” (John 15:7.) The whole secret of prayer is found in these words of our Lord. Here is prayer that has unbounded power: “Ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
