Blewett: the best fruit of prayer

Saturday, December 15, 2018
    For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
    —Hosea 6:6 (KJV)
    The last and highest result of prayer is not the securing of this or that gift, the avoiding of this or that danger. The last and highest result of prayer is the knowledge of God—the knowledge which is eternal life—and by that knowledge, the transformation of human character and of the world.
    ... George John Blewett (1873-1912), The Christian View of the World, Yale University Press, 1912, p. 249 (see the book)
    See also Hos. 6:6; Ps. 51:10; 85:9-13; Jer. 22:16; Eze. 36:26; Rom. 12:2; 2 Cor. 5:17; Eph. 4:22-24; Col. 3:9-10; Tit. 3:4-5; 1 John 2:3; 3:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Teach me, Lord, that I may know You!
