Hallesby: intimate prayer

Saturday, June 27, 2015
    ... pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
    —1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 (NIV)
    The spirit of prayer makes us so intimate with God that we scarcely pass through an experience before we speak to Him about it, either in supplication, in sighing, in pouring out our woes before Him, in fervent requests, or in thanksgiving and adoration.
    ... O. Hallesby (1879-1961), Prayer, London: Inter-Varsity Fellowship, 1943, reprint, Augsburg Fortress Books, 1975, 1994, p. 172 (see the book)
    See also 1 Thess. 5:17-18; Ps. 5:1; 18:49; 38:9; Luke 18:1; 21:36; Rom. 8:26; Eph. 6:18; Col. 4:2; Heb. 4:15; 1 Pet. 4:7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, fill me with the spirit of prayer.
