Wisdom of the Ages

“All Christ’s public acts were consecrated by prayer, — His baptism, His transfiguration, His miracles, His agony, His death. He breathed away His spirit in prayer. ” His last breath,” says Philip Henry, “was praying breath.”

“The Elements of Prayer:

Its ground: God, by whose goodness it springeth in us.

Its use: to turn our will to His will.

Its end: to be made one with Him and like to Him in all things”
Julian of Norwich

Wisdom of the Ages

E.M. Bounds

“When we pray, “Give us this day our daily bread,” we are, in a measure, shutting tomorrow out of our prayer. We do not live in tomorrow but in today. We do not seek tomorrow’s grace or tomorrow’s bread. They thrive best, and get most out of life, who live in the living present. They pray best who pray for today’s needs, not for tomorrow’s, which may render our prayers unnecessary and redundant by not existing at all!”
― E.M. Bounds
