Hallesby: the true battleground

Sunday, February 18, 2024
The LORD has heard my cry for mercy;
    the LORD accepts my prayer.
    —Psalm 6:9 (NIV)
    The secret prayer chamber is a bloody battleground. Here violent and decisive battles are fought out. Here the fate of souls for time and eternity is determined, in quietude and solitude.
    To pray is to open one’s heart to Jesus.
    ... O. Hallesby (1879-1961), Prayer, London: Inter-Varsity Fellowship, 1943, reprint, Augsburg Fortress Books, 1975, 1994, p. 98 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 6:9; Luke 18:1-8; Acts 1:14; Rom. 8:26-27; Gal. 4:6; Eph. 6:18; 1 Thess. 5:17; Jude 1:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Is my heart truly open to God through Christ?
