Brooks: the largest prayers

Tuesday, January 23, 2024
    Commemoration of Phillips Brooks, Bishop of Massachusetts, spiritual writer, 1893
    [The Disciples:] “Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
    —Acts 4:29-30 (NIV)
    Pray the largest prayers. You cannot think a prayer so large that God, in answering it, will not wish that you had made it larger.
    ... Phillips Brooks (1835-1893), The More Abundant Life: Lenten Readings, Dutton, 1906, p. 103 (see the book)
    See also Acts 4:29-30; Ex. 33:18; Ps. 27:1-3; 56:4; John 17:20-21; Rom. 8:15-17; Eph. 2:18; 3:12; 2 Thess. 3:1; Heb. 4:16; 10:23
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, enlarge my confidence in You.
