WHAT TO PRAY. – For all who are in Suffering


Hebrews 13:3 (NIV)
3  Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.


What a world of suffering we live in! How Jesus sacrificed all and identified Himself with it! Let us in our measure do so too. The persecuted and oppressed, the famine-stricken, the hidden slavery, the poverty and wretchedness of our great cities – and so much more: what suffering among those who know God and who know Him not. And then in smaller groups, in ten thousand homes and hearts, what sorrow. In our own neighborhood, how many needing help or comfort. Let us have a heart for, let us think of the suffering. It will stir us to pray, to work, to hope, to love more. And in a way and time we know not God will hear our prayer.


HOW TO PRAY. – Praying always, and not fainting


Luke 18:1 (NIV)
1  Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.


Do you not begin to feel prayer is really the help for this sinful world? What a need there is of unceasing prayer? The very greatness of the task makes us despair! What can our ten minutes of intercession avail? It is right we feel this: this is the way in which God is calling and preparing us to give our life to prayer. Give yourself wholly to God for men, and amid all your work, your heart will be drawn out to men in love, and drawn up to God in dependence and expectation. To a heart thus led by the Holy Spirit, it is possible to pray always and not to faint.
