Swetenham: practical mysticism

Monday, June 25, 2018
    [Jesus:] “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”
    —John 14:14 (NIV)
    “Prayer in the Name of Christ,” though it is essentially a mystical phrase, also contains a surface meaning which is very valuable to those who grasp and apply it... The more Jesus becomes our standard and inspiration in prayer, the more confident we may be of a favorable hearing.
    ... L. Swetenham, Conquering Prayer, London: J. Clarke, 1908, p. 169 (see the book)
    See also John 14:14; Matt. 7:7-8; 21:22; Mark 11:24; John 17; Heb. 5:7; 1 John 5:14-15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, conform me to Your will, so that I may ask those things that please You.
