Brent: intercession

Tuesday, February 14, 2017
    Feast of Cyril & Methodius, Missionaries to the Slavs, 869 & 885
    Commemoration of Valentine, Martyr at Rome, c.269
    Brothers, pray for us.
    —1 Thessalonians 5:25 (NIV)
    It makes a great difference in our feelings towards others if their needs and their joys are on our lips in prayer; as also it makes a vast difference in their feelings towards us if they know that we are in the habit of praying for them. There is no chasm in society that cannot be firmly and permanently bridged by intercession; there is no feud or dislike that cannot be healed by the same exercise of love.
    ... Charles H. Brent (1862-1929), With God in the World [1899], London: Longmans Green, 1914, p. 83 (see the book)
    See also 1 Thess. 5:25; Rom. 15:30; Eph. 6:18-20; 1 Tim. 2:1-2; 5:5; Heb. 13:18-19; Jas. 5:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, fill my life with prayer and love for Your people.
