Bounds: contact with God

Thursday, August 19, 2021
    Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
    —Romans 12:12 (NIV)
    Prayer is the contact of a living soul with God. In prayer, God stoops to kiss man, to bless man, and to aid in everything that God can devise or man can need. Prayer fills man’s emptiness with God’s fullness. It fills man’s poverty with God’s riches. It puts away man’s weakness with God’s strength. it banishes man’s littleness with God’s greatness. Prayer is God’s plan to supply man’s great and continual need with God’s great and continual abundance.
    ... E. M. Bounds (1835-1913), The Reality of Prayer, Racine: Treasres Media, Inc. 2007, p. 7 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 12:12; Ps. 42:8; John 10:10; 1 Thess. 5:17; Heb. 4:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I flourish from Your abundance.
