Phelps: prayer supplemented by action

Wednesday, August 1, 2018
    Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
    —James 4:8 (NIV)
    Prayer is the preface to the book of Christian living; the text of the new life sermon; the girding on of the armor for battle; the pilgrim’s preparation for his journey. It must be supplemented by action or it amounts to nothing.
    ... Arthur Stevens Phelps (1863-1948), included in Leaves of Gold, Evan S. Coslett & Clyde Francis Lytle, ed. [1948], Honesdale, Pa.: Coslett Publishing Company, 1938, p. 156 (see the book)
    See also Jas. 4:8; Ex. 14:15; Ps. 43:3; Luke 18:10-14
Quiet time reflection:
    May I be constantly reminded that the Lord’s purposes are behind all my activities.
