Andrew Murray – Holiness

“Nowhere can we get to know the holiness of God, and come under His influence and power, except in the inner chamber. It has been well said: “No man can expect to make progress in holiness who is not often and long alone with God.”

The Man of Sorrows

Man of Sorrows

Man of Sorrows

“He is despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows…”
Isaiah 53:3

“To identify with our plight, He came to see the darkness of this world, to touch our infirmities, to know our sorrows, and to reveal to us the heart of His heavenly Father. He was the Holy One walking amid depravity, the pure One feeling the oppression of religion and politics and the darkness and sin of fallen man. He was power wrapped in humility. He was the shining forth of the Light and Life of God Himself into a lost world. As God incarnate, He could fully realize the weakness of the human heart into which He breathed the power of the Love and Mercy of God.”
– Brian Troxel – The Paths of the Lord

George Montgomery – Prayer Song

George Montgomery – Prayer Song

James Montgomery

“Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire,
uttered or unexpressed;
the motion of a hidden fire
that trembles in the breast.

Prayer is the simplest form of speech
that infant lips can try,
prayer the sublimest strains that reach
the Majesty on high.

Prayer is the Christian’s vital breath,
the Christian’s native air,
his watchword at the gates of death:
he enters heaven with prayer.

Prayer is the contrite sinner’s voice,
returning from his ways;
while angels in their songs rejoice,
and cry, ‘Behold, he prays!

The saints in prayer appear as one,
in word and deed and mind;
while with the Father and the Son
sweet fellowship they find.

Nor prayer is made on earth alone:
the Holy Spirit pleads,
and Jesus on the eternal throne
for sinners intercedes.

O Thou by whom we come to God,
the Life, the Truth, the Way,
the path of prayer thyself hast trod:
Lord, teach us how to pray!”
– George Montgomery (1818)
