Bounds: of prayer

Wednesday, March 26, 2014
    Feast of Harriet Monsell of Clewer, Religious, 1883
    Therefore honor God with your body.
    —1 Corinthians 6:20b (NIV)
    Prayer does not stand alone. It is not an isolated performance. Prayer stands in closest connection with all the duties of an ardent piety. It is the issuance of a character which is made up of the elements of a vigorous and commanding faith. Prayer honours God, acknowledges His being, exalts His power, adores His providence, secures His aid... To pray well is to do all things well.
    ... E. M. Bounds (1835-1913), Purpose in Prayer, New York: Fleming H. Revell Company, 1920, p. 96 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 6:20; Isa. 26:13; Hos. 6:6; 1 Tim. 1:17; Heb. 4:16; Jude 1:20; Rev. 4:11
Quiet time reflection:
    Am I living the way I pray?
