MacDonald: not to faint

Wednesday, November 11, 2020
    Feast of Martin, Monk, Bishop of Tours, 397
    Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.
    —Luke 18:1 (NIV)
    There is a communion with God that asks for nothing, yet asks for everything... And he who seeks the Father more than anything He can give, is likely to have what he asks, for he is not likely to ask amiss.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), “Man’s Difficulty Concerning Prayer”, in Unspoken Sermons, Second Series, London: Longmans, Green, 1886, p. 92 (see the book)
    See also Luke 18:1; Matt. 6:33; Acts 15:16-17; 17:27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me a heart to commune with You.
