Thank you for the very great and precious promises you have granted your children. Your adopting me as your child has also given me the divine nature of your son, Jesus Christ.
Help me manifest this nature from this day; Let sinful desire and lust be overcome at all times in Jesus name. Amen
Power Through Prayer
BY: Edward M. Bounds
The term classic can appropriately be applied to this outstanding book. In twenty provocative and inspiring chapters, each prefaced with quotations from spiritual giants, Edward M. Bounds stresses the imperative of vital prayer in the life of a pastor. He says, “. . . every preacher who does not make prayer a mighty factor in his own life and ministry is weak as a factor in God’s work and is powerless to project God’s cause in this world.”
The Kneeling Christian
BY: Unknown Christian
It is not too much to say that all real growth in the spiritual life-all victory over temptation, all confidence and peace in the presence of difficulties and dangers, all repose of spirit in times of great disappointment or loss, all habitual communion with God-depend upon the practice of secret prayer.
This book was written by request, and with much hesitancy. It goes forth with much prayer. May He Who said, “Men ought always to pray, and not to faint,” “teach us to pray.”
The Practice of the Presence of God: The Best Rule of Holy Life
BY: Brother Lawrence
“I believe in the … communion of saints.” SURELY if additional proof of its reality were needed, it might be found in the universal oneness of experimental Christianity in all ages and in all lands. The experiences of Thomas á Kempis, of Tauler and of Madame Guyon, of John Woolman and Hester Ann Rogers, how marvellously they agree, and how perfectly they harmonize! And Nicholas Herman, of Lorraine, whose letters and converse are here given, testifies to the same truth! In communion with Rome, a lay brother among the Carmelites, for several years a soldier, in an irreligious age, amid a sceptical people, yet in him the practice of the presence of GOD was as much a reality as the “watch” of the early Friends, and the “holy seed” in him and others was the “stock” (Isa. vi. 16) from which grew the household and evangelistic piety of the eighteenth century, of Epworth and of Moorfields.
