M'Cheyne: praying at a distance

Tuesday, July 23, 2019
    Commemoration of Bridget of Sweden, Abbess of Vadstena, 1373
    Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
    —John 14:19-20 (NIV)
    If I could hear Christ praying for me in the next room, I would not fear a million enemies. Yet distance makes no difference. He is praying for me.
    ... Robert Murray M’Cheyne (1813-1843), The Life and Remains, Letters, Lectures, and Poems of the Rev. Robert Murray McCheyne, Andrew Alexander Bonar, New York: R. Carter, 1866, p. 138 (see the book)
    See also John 14:16-20; 17:9,15,20-21; Rom. 8:26-27; Heb. 7:25
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your presence drives out all fear.
