Bounds: to be a Christian

Wednesday, March 10, 2021
    [Jesus] withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”
    —Luke 22:41-42 (NIV)
    Prayer has everything to do with moulding the soul into the image of God, and has everything to do with enhancing and enlarging the measure of Divine grace. It has everything to do with enriching, broadening and maturing the soul’s experience of God. That man cannot possibly be called a Christian, who does not pray.
    ... E. M. Bounds (1835-1913), The Necessity of Prayer [1907], Lulu, 2007, p. 26 (see the book)
    See also Luke 22:41-42; Mark 1:35; Luke 5:16; 18:1-7; Phil. 4:6; Heb. 4:16; Jas. 5:16; Jude 1:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, incline my heart more towards prayer.
