Ryle: to be prayerless

Thursday, July 11, 2019
    Feast of Benedict of Nursia, Father of Western Monasticism, c.550
    The shepherds are senseless and do not inquire of the LORD; so they do not prosper and all their flock is scattered.
    —Jeremiah 10:21 (NIV)
    To be prayerless is to be without God, without Christ, without grace, without hope, and without heaven.
    ... J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), A Call to Prayer, published in the 1850’s as a pamphlet, American Tract Society, 1867, sec. I, p. 6 (see the book)
    See also Jer. 10:21; Ps. 10:4; Jer. 8:9; Isa. 43:22-24; 64:6-7; Zeph. 2:3; John 10:12-13; Rom. 3:10-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, teach us to pray in accordance with Your will.

“Lord, teach us to pray in accordance with Your will.”
Amen to this prayer above, Lord!
Heavenly Father,
Help us pray we obey your will in the most important 2 commandments Jesus fulfilled with His own words, for which words of Jesus, the Holy Spirit has been sent in Jesus’ name to live in the hearts of everyone who believes in Jesus’ name for repentance and forgiveness of sins, and there teaches us and reminds us of everything Jesus said to us, to lead us into all truth in Jesus, who is one with you, Father, in the One Spirit, of the One, Good Shepherd, who gathers into your one, eternal flock, every single repentant, mutually loving and forgiving, believer in His name, including believers in every Christian denomination and Christian faith group.
