Bounds: the center

Monday, August 29, 2022
    [Jesus:] “But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”
    —Matthew 17:21 (NIV)
    God’s true preachers have been distinguished by one great feature: they were men of prayer. Differing often in many things, they have always had a common center. They may have started from different points, and traveled by different roads, but they converged to one point: they were one in prayer. God to them was the center of attraction, and prayer was the path that led to God.
    ... E. M. Bounds (1835-1913), Preacher and Prayer, Publishing House of the M. E. Church, South, Dallas, Tex., 1907, p. 41 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 17:14-21; Acts 1:14; 4:31; 20:36; Eph. 6:18; Heb. 5:7; James 5:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, fill my heart with the prayer that pleases You.
