Torrey: beyond the need to pray?

Sunday, September 11, 2022
    I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.
    —Romans 15:30 (NIV)
    We hear much in our day of the “rest of faith”, but there is such a thing as the fight of faith in prayer as well as in effort. Those who would have us think that they have attained to some sublime height of faith and trust because they never know any agony of conflict or of prayer, have surely gotten beyond their Lord, and beyond the mightiest victors for God, both in effort and prayer, that the ages of Christian history have known.
    ... R. A. Torrey (1856-1928), How to Pray, Fleming H. Revell, 1900, p. 36 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 15:30; Dan. 9:3; Hos. 6:6; Hab. 1:2; Mark 11:24; Luke 11:5-8; 18:1-6; 22:41-45; Rom. 8:26; 2 Cor. 12:7-9; Eph. 6:18; Heb. 5:7-10; Jas. 5:15-16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me faith to pray in earnest and belief.
