Extended Ryle: A Call to Prayer - Yahweh-Nissi; Banners to Follow.

Today’s episode is bracketed by Marvin and Chapman’s “That’s What Love Is” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Yeah!

J.C. Ryle holds up for us banners of faith. Men who might be called standard bearers held up to show us the way and inspire confidence.

Yahweh-Nissi means God our banner, and as in ancient battle, Moses, David, Daniel, and Paul are lifted up as examples to follow.

Added to our Biblical list Luther, Bradford, the Reformers en mass, Whitefield, Cecil, Venn, Bickersteth, M’Cheyne, Hannah, and Lydia all encourage our prayers as practical and necessary to our worthy walk.

After the Bishop’s list, he reminds us:

Prayer obtains fresh and continued outpourings of the Spirit. He alone begins the work of grace in a man’s heart. He alone can carry it forward and make it prosper. But the good Spirit loves to be entreated. And those who ask most will have most of his influence.”

"What a man is on his knees before God, that he is and nothing more."
