Rutherford: understanding moods in prayer

Friday, October 27, 2017
Hear my prayer, O LORD;
    listen to my cry for mercy.
In the day of my trouble I will call to you,
    for you will answer me.
Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord;
    no deeds can compare with yours.
    —Psalm 86:6-8 (NIV)
    Your heart is not the compass which Christ saileth by.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664), Letters of Samuel Rutherford, Edinburgh: William Whyte & Co., 1848, letter, June 16, 1637, p. 349 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 86:6-8; Num. 23:19; 1 Sam. 15:29; Eze. 24:14; 2 Tim. 2:13; Heb. 6:18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, send Your Spirit to guide me in Your way.
