Owen: prayer and life

Thursday, October 18, 2018
    Feast of Luke the Evangelist
    During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him...
    —Hebrews 5:7-9 (NIV)
    He who prays as he ought will endeavour to live as he prays.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), I.4 in The Grace and Duty of being Spiritually Minded [1681], in Works of John Owen, v. VII, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1852, p. 295 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 5:7-9; Matt. 6:5-8; Rom. 12:10-15; Jas. 2:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, send Your Spirit to conform my life and prayers to Your will.
