Allshorn: the object of prayer

Thursday, March 23, 2017
    For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
    —Hosea 6:6 (KJV)
    The primary object of prayer is to know God better; we and our needs should come second.
    ... Florence Allshorn (1887-1950), The Notebooks of Florence Allshorn, London: SCM Press, 1957, p. 96 (see the book)
    See also Hos. 6:6; Prov. 1:7; Jude 1:20,21
Quiet time reflection:
    Teach me, Lord, to please You.
